May be an odd request here...frameset racks?

Hi all,

Seeing that there are many collectors in this area of the site I thought I would pose this question to you.
I am steadily collecting framesets from the 80's and early 90's but have not found a good way to store them properly. I'd like to create/purchase some sort of rack system that takes little space but still looks attractive. I really don't want a bunch of hooks from the ceiling to hang them from, but I do want them elevated off the ground. Currently I have 8 framesets, but undoubtedly will be adding more in the future.

What would you recommend? All suggestions are welcomed.
If you already have a nice frameset rack (store-bought or custom made) set up please post some pictures of it!

Thanks in advance.

I have wire shelving running along the wall way up high in my garage. Makes a great rack to hang the frames on by the rear dropouts.


John Howard, Paramount, Gardin awaiting build up.

OT: is it getting out of hand yet?
