Looking for a way to keep the kids bikes from laying all over the yard?
Try this PVC Bike Rack, it will hold five bikes.
What you’ll need:
4- Lengths of 1 ½ PVC pipe
14- 1 ½ PVC elbows
20- 1 ½ PVC T’s
1- Can of PVC glue
Making the cuts:
Cut 10 pieces of PVC 3 ½ inches long. Then cut the rest into 12 inch pieces.
Connecting everything together:
1- Glue two 12-inch pieces into either end of an elbow making a V. Repeat 10 times.
2- Glue the ends of the V’s you just made into the “T” end of the PVC T’s.
Be sure they are at a 90-degree angle to your elbows to make your “V” stand upright.
3- Standing up one of your V’s, glue a 12-inch piece in to each T, so that they are coming out on the same side. Connect the 12-inch pieces using another 12-inch piece and two elbows.
4- On the other side of your T’s, glue a piece of three-inch PVC.
5- Now glue on a V to the 3 ½ pieces, and glue a 12-inch piece to the open side of the T’s.
6- Repeat steps 4 and 5, four times.
7- To close the end off, repeat step 3
Note: To ensure that you have all your pieces in the proper order, you can assemble your bike rack without glue, then remove one piece at a time and glue it as you go.
