Cruisin' on my Bluebird
In hindsight, looks like a ratio of heavy bikes to light-duty hooks ~4:1 was insufficient.

The integration of shelf brackets with hooks might have just complicated things, as the shelf likely doesn’t need 10 or more brackets.

I have some bike crank sets hanging from the overhead in the garage, hooked to 5’ wooden garden stakes (about 1” x 1”), and can see the wood flex with 4 crank sets.

Sorry to see that. I think i have a similar setup in my closet. Hope it doesnt collapse with all my wife's junk on top and the clothes hanging on it... 😏😏

would give you immediate physical evidence to say "...gee honey, have you ever thought of getting rid of some of these items you never wear anymore?" [or can get into]

Wore out three sets of tires already!
So I'm in the house and I hear this horrendous crash like the sound of thousands of dollars worth of balloon tired bicycles being dropped onto a floor all at once and I ran out to my garage to see what happened and discovered that's exactly what happened. Apparently my clever way of hanging a rod in the hooked ends of of these shelf brackets was not adequate to hold about a ton of antique iron. I've had it like this for years but I guess these high temps we've been having softened the metal enough to cause it to let go. Luckily I had two of my favorite and most valuable bikes leaned up against the rack of these less valuable bikes to help brake the fall. 😖 Miraculously there was no major damage other than some tweeked fenders and some scuffs.

Race car dash? I'm not sure what you mean. Its kinda beat like everything I own. But it runs great.

Thank you! 😃

one of the things people used to do when they set up a 510 to race was to replace the stock dash with a simple sheet metal affair with only the essential instruments -

then inevitably, some wiseguy comes along and does this -

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Well it's not how I planned to spend this beautiful Saturday afternoon but it's all fixed. There really wasn't much damage that I can see. This chain guard might have been the worst thing but I'm not sure if it wasn't like this before. I know it was pretty bent up.
