Hollywood & Kuat Car Racks


Hollywood Racks has something for everyone!Hollywood's The Original rack is still popular today!

Hollywood began making racks in the back of their family-owned bike shop in Hollywood, California in 1973, and their aim was simple: to make easy-to-use, quality products that come fully assembled. Their first rack, a virtually indestructible trunk-mount named The Original, proved incredibly popular and is still in production today (right).

Hollywood quickly gained a reputation and began selling their racks to big-name bike companies, such as Schwinn, Peugeot and Nishiki.
As demand grew, founder Henry Nusbaum closed the bike shop in 1981 and opened a small factory in Los Angeles solely for the production of car racks.

Hollywood Racks founder Henry Nusbaum with his son and grandson around 1988.Nusbaum soon found himself exporting racks to Europe, and in the 90's he expanded the line to include racks for hitches, pickups and spare tires. Their newest rack, the Buzz Rack, carries up to two bikes on your car's roof plus a padded, water-resistant gear bag. There are also basic Hollywood products like their Fork Block, which allows you to mount bikes virtually anywhere.Get a Hollywood car rack and start exploring!

Trunk/Hatchback Racks
Trunk racks strap to the trunk lid or hatch of a vehicle and are usually the most affordable type of rear mounted rack.  Although they sometimes require removal to access the trunk area of a vehicle, installation and removal is very easy and can be done in minutes. Capacity can range from one to four bikes.


Receiver Hitch Racks for 3 to 5 Bikes
Hollywood Receiver Hitch Racks mount to a receiver on a vehicle and are very secure and stable. They have the ability to transfer quickly to other vehicles with a minimum of adjustment, and make loading and unloading bikes easy due to their lower overall height. Another attractive feature of hitch racks is they do not contact your vehicle's finish. Hollywood hitch mounted racks fold to allow easy access to the vehicle for equipment or passengers. Most cars, trucks, and SUV's will accept some type of trailer/receiver hitch.
