These bicycle coat racks are hand made by Jos Van Hulsen in his home studio in West Footscray. Perfect gift for a cycling enthusiast. These are by far our most popular product.
The bikes are constructed from steel and wood with a durable powder coating finish. and have 5 hooks to hang scarves, hats, jackets or bags.
As each is bicycle coat rack is hand crafted, there will be slight variations to the ones pictured . . . . we think this is what makes them all so special. Jos is able to do custom colors on the bikes too just call us to discuss your requirements.
The bikes are easy to install. They need to be mounted on a wall using two small screws. These stud finding techniques will serve you well for any DYI project including putting up shelves or simply hanging a picture.
Locate your stud in the wall. The two holes are aligned so you only need to find one stud. Finding studs is relatively easy. There are a number of ways to find a stud either manually or using a stud finder.
The tapping method
If doing the job manually the tap method is quite effective. By tapping on a spot where a stud exists will produce a solid sound. Every place where there isn’t a stud will produce a hollow sound.
Using a magnet
This is actually as good as any stud finder and will save you lots of dollars. Rather than me explaining this I have found a good little video (which is slightly hilarious) In 2 minutes you can make your own stud finder that will work a treat every time. Click HERE to view.
The other option is to get your hands on a stud finder. Ask around as chances are one of your friends will have one. Otherwise you will need to purchase one. Prices can range dramatically. As with most things the more you pay, the more accurate your stud finder will be.
For brick walls you will need a masonry screw and masonry drill bit. Be sure to drill into the mortar and not the brick itself. First of all drill a hole in the spot you want to hang the work. Try to ensure both holes line up with the mortar on the brickwork. Once the hole is drilled use your masonry screw and screw the bike on to the wall. Hanging things on a brick wall is pretty straight forward however it all depends on the state of the mortar. In older building the mortar can be a crumbly. If it is your first time doing this it may pay to find a 'handy' friend to give you a hand.

Westography by Warren Kirk is photographic book that documents images of a vanishing suburbia. Helen Garner eloquently provides a introduction to this amazing documentation of the western suburbs of Melbourne. This book however transcends postcodes. It could be anywhere. It is a snapshot in time. An important historical documentation of Australia's suburban fringes.
"Warren Kirk is drawn to forgotten things, to the old, the neglected, the left behind. He loves a bricked-up corner shop, a crumbling factory whose function is no longer evident, a locked weatherboard cottage so decrepit that it is holding itself above the abyss of collapse." Helen Garner. Westography, images of a forgotten Suburbia
Warren Kirk held his first solo exhibition here at Post Industrial Design in 2012 Documenting his beloved western suburbs Warren Kirk finds beauty in the ordinary. Many of the images that were in the exhibition are now in this beautifully bound hard cover book.
