Vintage Bike Rack

Can someone point me to the location of the thread or eBay link of that red vintage bike rack for a Chevy. It had a photo of a shirtless guy standing beside the team car with the custom rack on it, the photo was dated to the 1980s.

The rack was up on eBay within the past couple of months.

Thanks

It was also on the local CL for something like $1,500 asking.

It would be quite a bit of work to recreate it, but as it was made to mount to the vehicle rain gutter flanges...

I am not wishing to recreate it, only find the advertisement for it once again.

Looks like a Buick Estate Wagon. All the maneuverability of an English Manor House.

Probably hard to find an Estate Wagon, or Chevy or Olds equivalent , (still running) to go under it.

Listed again on craigslist for $1500 https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...060416453.html
[h=2] vintage campagnolo neutrel support roof rack! - $1500 (sherman oaks)[/h]

this is one of the holy grails of vintage campagnolo memorabelia! this is the original custom made chromoly steel roof rack made for the campagnolo neutrel suport services buick station wagon in the 1980's. this rack has seen action at the coors classic, world road championships in colorado springs, corestates us pro championships in philadelphia, and countless other north american races. I have lots of additional photos including vintage pics of the rack on the buick station wagon with jim ingram and bill woodul and I have emails documenting the history of the rack from jim and I am happy to print out copies of these emails for the purchaser. According to Jim Ingram, this rack was made of columbus and reynolds tubing and fillet brazed by Jimmy Flannigan (a former campy wrench who was working for Romic Bicycles when this rack was commissioned by campagnolo USA). the rack is in excellent condition and is fully functional with its original paint job. the rack has been in climate controlled storage for the last 15+ years. the front section of the rack will hold 2 complete bikes with "race ready" style side mounts which hold the bikes on the outside portion of the rack with quick release mounts so they can be taken down in seconds for bike changes. it also will hold 4 bikes with just the front wheel removed and 8 front wheels and 2 rear wheels. the rear portion of the rack holds 8 rear wheels and 6 front wheels. all of the wheel mounts use campagnolo dropouts and the rear dropouts are spaced for 128mm but since the rack is chromoly, you could easily respace them for 130mm. the front rack comes with 4 Lifetime brand guttermount style feet and the rack has a bolt hole to line everything up but one could VERY EASILY make a set of 4 spacers with slots in them (would cost you less than $100 at any machine shop) so they would work on any car and with any style of yakima or thule foot mount. the rear rack is designed to be easily clamped/bolted to existing factory installed or aftermarket crossbars. I will be willing to ship but shipping for this rack will not be cheap ast the parts are oversized and will have to ship in boxes considered "freight" due to their dimensions. A very accurate estimate will be shipping costs of $150-200 within the continental USA. I will list shipping at $200 and if its much less I will refund the difference. shipping to canada or alaska and hawaii will be much more I'm guessing. I am happy to ship international but you must figure out the costs. please do not ask me questions like weight or size as I wont know until the rack is boxed up. I was going to use this rack for my own technical support program but ended up selling my station wagon and don't need a rack this big and I am VERY sorry to see it go. this would be great for your race team, neutrel support program or as an amazing shop display! . to have a rack like this made today would easily cost $3000+ and would never have the cool factor this one has! please feel free to ask any questions and you can come see it if you live in LA. keyword campy, campagnolo, tool kit, 50th anniversary, corkscrew, tulio, valention, 1010B, dropouts, race ready, race support, moreno argentin, lemond, hinault, morgul bizmark, tour of the moon, american flyers, breaking away, kevin costner, derosa, colnago, sannino, guerciotti, shimano, suntour, mavic, vitus, I would consider VERY interesting trades for this rack....like maybe a motorcycle or VERY nice bike!

Why not? All those full size GMs of the 80's had the same dimensions. Although the custom bodywork on a hearse might mess with that a little. Looking at the construction of the thing, I don't see why a decent welder couldn't fab one up for about $1000. The guy who built my firewood rack could do it in a day. I think the binders that grab the forks at the dropouts are about $15 each on ebay, everything else is could be easily done in standard box and angle angle iron. Be heavier than cro-mo, but just as strong.

I don't recall if hearses of that vintage had gutters, I believe the extended roof shape may not help much. I did see a catalog from that period once, showed all the hearses, limos, flower cars, and accessories.

That man is Bill Woodul and in February 1999 he received USA Cycling Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2004.
Very far from a hipster.
