I repurposed a old Bell bike carrier into a spare tire carrier and it worked out well. Don't own a bicycle and the kids all grew up and moved away but I can even slip the bike fork back on if I ever had the need to haul a bike. Welded a tow attachment on the base so it's multipurpose. Still need to clean it up and get it powder coated but it's coming along. Might also make a system to pin it to the grab bar so I can skip the anti-rattle device on the receiver that requires a wrench for removal. Work in progress.
