Homemade Bicycle Rack

There's an awful lot of old bedsteads being scrapped in this country at the same time that bicycling is enjoying a greatly increased popularity. Wonderful! An ideal recycling situation has been set up.

What you do, see, is you take the headpiece off one of those antiquated iron bed frames, and you remove the casters and embed the legs of the assembly in cement and . . . presto! You've got yourself a homemade bicycle rack that's every bit as good as an expensive store-bought model.
