ideas for bike display

im going to be needing a way to get 5 or 6 bikes displayed in a tiny 5x6 foot spot at a sale im attending soon. ANyone have any ideas on building a free standing bike rack really cheap so that you can get some of them off the ground? Im thinking that is the only way.

I think Park has some bike stands or repair stands that might fit the needs.

This thread has a few ideas about making a rack from PVC.

I built a wooden A frame rack that held 5 bikes too.

i saw a guy that made a stand that held 2 bikes (one on top of the other) that was self supporting out of old 2x4s or pvc pipe.

I should have asked him about it but didnt. It looked just like the ones you can get at performance http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...551_1023853_-1___ but out of scrap wood.
