Need some advice on a trunk rack
Ok so I have been looking for a good used trunk rack for a few weeks. I finally stumbled upon one in a friends garage. He said I could have it as it is missing some parts and needs the straps replaced. He got it from a garage sale and has since bought a new one... So I bring it home and start looking at it... I look at for a good 10 minutes and I cannot figure out how this thing was supposed to work, or what it might be missing. I decided to clean it up and wash it off (been sitting in a mechanics garage for quite some time, it was extremely dirty) as I am cleaning it I notice a sticker that says "hunch"... so I jump on google and search for "hunch bike rack"
Yeah Dude had no idea what he had...
so I mount it correctly and replace the straps and I now have a Delta Hunch Rack on my car. As nice as this rack is I have a little problem I need to figure out. I really don't want to have to take the front wheel off just to make short trips to the park with my son. I was thinking about just making a bracket to the attach to the front rim but I'm not sure I want to go through that for it.
So I was wondering if anyone made a kit or had any other suggestions as to how I might be able to use this rack without removing the front wheels of our bikes. I am sure I am not the only person that does not want to remove the front wheel while using this type of rack (I know roof racks use this system as well)
I have fabricated my fair share of brackets and such so its not a matter of getting it done. I just don't want to modify something I might want to sell if it does not work out.

After doing some research it may just be easier to pickup a quick disconnect front wheel for each bike.
any suggestions on this?
I am new to the game so help me out.
we have recreational use only "big box Store" bikes.
Would this fit the bill?
