    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.
