Winch Wheel Bike Holder

I wasn't happy with the position of the winch as the fairlead wasn't up to the job and the tyre lifted in the wrong plane.
This was the original position, we reverted to plan A and lifted the tyre directly off the winch which needed two supports with a gap for the cable
Graham welding the new arms.
Winch in situ with the bike rack base.
Checking that the bikes fit....I will turn the handlebars through 90 degrees
The bikes are high up so I intend to use the little jumbo ladders from the entrance to access them.  This needs a drop down support to facilitate.
Brackets for support.
Support in dropped position which I will locate with some kind of pin mechanism.
