    10-74 update

    Frame should be going to heat treat this week, I finished the XC frame I had sold before I started the 10-74 ( check out the pic ) and hopefully I'll get some 1.5 headtubes from my machinist so I can build a bighit hardtail for myself, and then send the 3 frames together, I have to pay a '' batch '' price for the oven, and quench.
    A guy where I work is going to start the wheel builds next week hopefully. I decided to paint it hot rod orange, very sick.
    I'll keep in touch,
    RTW.

    Sweet.
    I want to see the bighit hardtail.
    BTW, how much would it cost for someone to buy a frame like that?

    Ick, orange is fugly. Of all colors, why orange, rick? Atleast it's not yellow . . .

    Here's an idea: why not orange and black stripes? Still ugly, but not so fugly.

    And it would go perfectly with a modded 07 orange Z1!

    I say... either green argyle with raw or green paint to match, or reduced 2007 Z1 with matching orange black fade paint.

    WTF? Why do you want it to look like Tony the Tiger?
    This bike isn't made by Frosted Flakes you know.

    i wasnt remembring that the fork would be green , so i now think rid3rs idea of raw would be good. and throw in some green lettering




    10-74 or maybe The Collaberation (because the bike is a "colaberation" of ideas)

    I think some part of the frame needs to be black . . . How 'bout raw with green lettering, but have the green lettering outlined in black?

    Here's a color coordinated bikeCAD (not the exact 10-74 (just something I had previously worked on), but it gets the point across)

    Of course the raw aluminum will look quite a bit defferent, but thats exactly what I was thinking of! And BTW (hope I don't sound dumb but I think I missed something) what does 10-74 mean?

    If that's the case, and you missed something, I'll feel stupid with you.

    I think 10-74 is just some name rick came up with. I opted for 10-73 (I think it sounds better), but everyone else was happier with 10-74.

    Orange with orange lowered z1 is where it's at. I dig it. Of course have some black thrown in there.

    The freerider paint job costs $300, sorry, can't do it. I have to build it with a budget of about 600. Trust me guys, I'll do it justice.
    10-74 means something, I'll never tell. But it can be figured out, if someone gets it, I'll confirm it.

    If rick only has $600 to build it up, he can't afford an orange z1. It costs 600 by itself! In fact, for only 600, the bike would have to go rigid unless most everything was bought used. I think everyone's in agreement that the fork would have to be new, because so far the only forks anyone has opted to put on are 07s.

    Why don't we all send 5 bucks to rick or something to help build it up? That's atleast an extra 100 bucks plus any spare parts.

    that's a good thing. IMO flame paint jobs are lame on anything besides an old school hot rod. Just get it powdercoated.

    powdercoat will add up to, and possibly over 1lb of completely unecessary weight to the frame.
    can't tell right now, but the orange in my head will probably remind me of the general lee.

    HeHe,
    In '' fuzz'' codes negative means negative. Ever hear someone say negative on a radio ? It does'nt rhyme with anything, or sound like any other word, hence no change. If it helps, my old lady is an ACO.
    Powdercoat weighs 4 oz.
    Understand that I see raw frames in my dreams and nightmares...........
    I weld frames for a living. Raw means unfinished.

    i figured it out...that was simple.

    it is obviously where he buys his drugs



    when the coordinants 10-74 are typed into google maps, this point comes up (the exact coordinants are 10.000000 -74.000000)

    The answer is...

    Article 19
    Non-addicts who use the narcotic drugs referred to in Article 4, shall be sentenced, proportionately, to ten to seventy four lashes or a fine of five thousand/to thirty seven thousand rials, and the non-addicts who use the drugs mentioned in Article B, shall be condemned to twenty to seventy four lashes or a fine of ten thousand to thirty seven thousand rials.

    hey all.
    been lurking/learning for a while now, shopping for a new ride.
    don't know why it took this for me to post, but...

    10-74 is animal control ordinance for a dangerous dog.

    yes?

    10-74

    Too cool to see all the guesses, but sorry, none right yet.
    BTW, I started welding @ 18, and I'm 48.
    GeoffSS, the Iran thing killed me, nice job. How's Naz ? Tell her I said Hi. Does she ride urban ?
    The frame goes to heat treat this Friday, or next Monday.

    I figure 10-74 stands for October 1974 and since 1974 was an important year in the history of BMX, I'm assuming that the first BMX something happened in October. I think there were some BMX frame firsts that occurred in 74, but I'll leave it to others to figure out exactly what it refers to .

    Maybe it's when rickthewelder got his 1st bmx bike, then again, maybe 10/74 is when he finally hit puberty.

    10-74 is animal control ordinance for a dangerous dog.

    yes?

    Hmm, maybe you're really 74 and something about 10 year olds. Forget I even said that. This Foley scandal has just ruined my perfect morals. Yeah, forget that too. My mind permanently resides in the gutter.

    You got 10 years probation for stealing 74 bikes when you were a kid







    Then thought it would be better to just make your own.

    The frame goes to heat treat this Friday, or next Monday.
    I'll keep in touch.

    Ha ha, yea uh Nazee totally rides urban and needs a new frame

    She is going to finally get the photo done this weekend I thinks. She was thinking of red hotpants, go-go boots and lipstick on her pink beach cruiser?

    10-74=(-64) Rick still owes $64 to the guy he bought the aluminum for.

    The death of a family member was something that made sense I just had to stick out there.

    That sounds good and all, but 74 hours would only be about 3 days (3 days and 2 hrs, specifically). I think it took him a week to get everything done.


    There were 10 different voting options for geometry (remember free-rider's poll?), and the poll was open for 74 hours.

    He drank 10 beers while making the frame and it took him 74 tries to get the frame right.
    That's 740 beers.

    It's the gear ratio, SS 10-rear and 74-front!

    But, wait he could be secretly turning this into the ultimate trials bike with 74-rear and 10-front. You could go up a vertical wall with that ratio!

    Brad,
    I am not taking any pleasure in telling you that you need to work on your literacy. I'm pretty sure that '' propetuating, or sudo '' don't exist in the english language, I tried to look them up and they are'nt there. Niether is '' intrested ''. Is it alcohol ? What does '' humilation '' mean ? Like I say, no pleasure in it for me.
    It's really not impressive.
    Maybe get some help, eh ?
    RTW.

    OK, you say that you're 48, so in 1974 you were 16, and in October (10th month), you started welding.

    Oh, thats what Snaky69 meant . . .

    rick, I think brad meant pseudo (false), not sudo. As far as propetuating, yeah, I think that was beer talking . . .

    Rick, will you tell us who's guess has been closest?
