I saw a 1930's bicycle on Craigslist that I thought would be cool to restore for my wife. I thought it would go well with my 35 Buick at car shows. Does anyone know when they started making bicycle racks for cars and if there's a picture of a vintage one so it might be reproduced? Or one for sale. Thanks.

Thanks for getting a topic like this started... It got me searching for other information on how another type sports equipment was typically carried "in the old days".

Looks like the now typical roof rack for sporting equipment is a 1950s or 60s thing. From the photos I'm finding it looks like if an item could possibly be strapped to a running board or to the back of the car, that is where it went. Exceptions I've found so far are for a canoe and for a soap box derby car, both strapped to the roof.

Will be interesting to see what others turn up for how it was done way back when.
