BICYCLE-STAND.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 602,415, dated April 12, 1898.

Application filed August l2, 1896. Serial No. 602,530. (No model.)

T0 all whom t may concern:

Beit known that I, JOSEPH R. MOORE, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Denver, in the county of Arapahoe and State of Colorado, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bicycle-Stands; and I do declare the following to bea full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to improvements in bicycle-stands; and it consists of the features, arrangements, and combinations hereinafter described and claimed, all of which will be fully understood by reference to the accompanying drawings, in which is illustrated an embodiment thereof.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved bicycle-stand. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the swinging bracket. Fig. 3 is a similar view of the detachable shoe used in conjunction with the bracket. Fig. 4 is a perspective view in detail of the horizontal rack. Fig. 5 is a similar view of the vertical rack. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the auxiliary bracket. Fig. 7 illustrates a modified form of construction.

Similar reference characters indicating corresponding parts in the views, let the numeral 5 designate a bracket having a depending stem 5fL engaging a socket formed in a plate 10, attached to a wall or other suitable stationary support. The outer portion 5c of the bracket is downwardly inclined and provided with four grooves 5d on its upper surface. To the grooved face of this bracket is applied a correspondingly-grooved shoe S, the shoe and the bracket being connected With a set-screw 7. Between the bracket and the shoe are secured the vertical and horizontal racks 9 and 12, respectively, each composed of an integral rod bent double and shaped to receive the wheels of the bicycle. The extremities of the rods forming these racks are bent to conform to the inclination of the part 5c of the bracket. The extremities 9d of the part 9 are also bent outwardly from the main vertical portion, as

shown at 9, to permit them to engage the two outer grooves of the bracket and shoe. The bent extremities 12a of the rack 12 engage the inner grooves of the bracket and shoe. The racks are locked in place by the set-screw 7, which passes through the part 5c of the bracket and engages a threaded aperture formed in the shoe S. The rack 12 is provided with adjustable stops 13, each composed of two parts whose extremities clasp the parallel sides of the rack. The parts are locked in place by a set-screw 13% Vhen in use,one bicycle-wheel occupies the space A of the rack 12 between the shoe 8 and the stop 13 nearer the shoe, while the other wheel occupies the space B between the outer stop 13 and the outer extremities of the rack. The rack 12 is hinged or jointed, as shown at 26, to allow it to be folded when not in use. The wheel which occupies the space A of the rack 12 also engages the shoe 8 and the rack 9.

The socket-plate 10 may be placed any desired distance above the iioor of the room, and the stand may be adjusted to occupy a position parallel with the Wall to which the plate 10 is attached, or it may be swung to form any desired angle therewith.

In Fig. '7 a modified form of the construction is shown. This is adapted to permit the vertical adjustment of the stand. In this case the socket-support 10a for the bracket 5 is provided with a collar 10, which surrounds an upright tube 15, upon which the part 10a is adapted to slide freely. yThe tube 15 is attached to the stationary support in any suitable manner, as by apertured plates 25, cast integral with the tube or attached thereto in any suitable manner. To the movable socket 10iL is attached a cord or chain 16, which passes over a pulley 17, mounted on the top of the tube, the opposite extremity of the chain being connected with aweight 1S, adapted to slide freely in the tube. The gravity of this Weight should be so adj usted that the stand and the bicycle carried thereby may be easily raised or lowered.

It will be observed that the apparatus may be quickly taken apart and packed into small space.

It will often be found convenient to employ an auxiliary bracket 2O (see Fig. 6) in con- IOO ' by means of a set-screw 6.

nection with the mechanism already described. This bracket 2O is composed of a horizontal arm 20 and a vertical stem 2l, adapted to t the socket in the plate l0. The outer extremity of the arm 520:L is provided with an eye 20G, adapted to receive the stem 5n of the bracket 5. Either bracket may be locked in any desired position of adjustment The bracket 2O is provided with a curved stop 23, passed through an aperture 20a. This stop is provided witha collar 23a, adapted to engage one side of the bracket-arm, and a set-screw 23C, adapted to engage the opposite side of said arm. This stop 23 engages the wall and prevents the moving of the rack thereagainst.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim isl. In a bicycle-stand, the combination ofthe suspended bracket having a grooved inclined face, theshoe adaped to lit the inclined face of the bracket and provided with counterpart grooves,the horizontal andvertical racks,each composed of two parallel arms adapted to receive the wheels of the bicycle and support the latter in an upright position, said racks being adapted to engage the grooves in the bracket and shoe, and suitable means for connecting the bracket and shoe, substantiallyas described.

2. In a bicycle-stand,the combination of the suspendedswingingbracket having a grooved inclined face,the horizontal and vertical racks each .composed of two parallel arms adapted to receive the bicycle-wheels, and having bent extremities adapted to engage the grooves in the bracket and shoe, and suitable means for connecting the bracket and shoe, substantially as described.

3. In a bicycle-stand, the combination of a vertically-adj ustable suspended bracket having an inclined face, a shoe adapted to fit the bracket, the horizontal and vertical racks each having parallel arms adapted to receive the bicycle-wheels, said racks being adapted to engage the bracket and shoe which embrace the rack extremities on opposite sides, and suitable means for connecting the bracket and shoe whereby the racks are held securely in place.

4. In a bicycle-stand,the combination of the suspended verticallyadjustable swinging bracket having an inclined face, a shoe adapted` to fit said face, the horizontal and vertical racks adapted to receive the wheels of the bicycle and support the same in an `upright position, said racks being adapted to engage the inclined face of the bracket, and suitable' means for connecting the bracket and shoe which embrace the rack extremities on opposite sides.

5. A bicycle-stand, comprising a rack 0ccupying substantially a horizontal position and composed of two separated arms adaptedy to receive the bicycle-wheels and provided with suitable stops to hold the wheel securely in place, and suitable means attached to one extremity of the rack for suspending the latter at any desired height above the ground or other surface.
