Default Hitch Mount Rack For Two motorized bicycles

Well I finally finished my Rack so I will be able to haul the motorized bicycles to the State Parks and Lake areas and try to get away from some of the crazy drivers on the city streets.
I started with a fairly heavy (Hollywood Brand) hitch mount rack. I figured I should beef it up to handle the extra weight of the motorized bicycles. And I also wanted to make it as painless as possible when it came to loading and unloading them.
I built steel tubes to go in the seat post mounts, so all I have to do is pull the seats off with the quick release clamps, drop the tubes in and clamp them on the brackets I made coming off of a center bar. It requires no tools, just split clamps with ratchet handles to tighten everything down.
