You Don't Know Jack...

I've got a new to me Jack Taylor project that @nlerner picked up for me (maybe last year?). It's orange. It's dented. It's a real POS.

Let me know if you want pics and I'll send you a post card (just Venmo me money for a stamp).

Thanks.

I've got a couple dented frames. It fits my preferences for "riders" as I kind of like them looking POS and less likely to be stolen.

Orange and with a dent?
All I can offer is.....

Do It Justice.


In this category, I am with @Dylansbob - most little dents never affect the ride quality. Never been too proud to ride a true classic possessing a small dent and some patina.
(altho upon recollection, I did sell a classic that had some rather sever cosmetic damage with shipping from Europe.)

I have a dent on one of my bikes- something fell out of the rafters of
the garage. Still makes my stomach queasy.

This is the C&V forum right?

I don't know how to use a computer so I'll need you all to send me your home addresses and I'll mail you some pics.

Send me your self addressed stamped envelopes as required.

Don't worry, I'll do some pencil drawings of this awesome frame build and include those as well!

the rest of my communiqués from here on out will be via telegram (or stone tablet - your choice).

Godspeed.

I got lucky with that one. I just slammed on the keyboard a bunch of times like a crazed cocaine monkey and that time it turned out something posted to the world wide web.

But don't worry, I know how to lick a stamp.

Anyhoo, as luck would have it i have a chronic case of "cotton mouf" which as it turns out makes it really hard to send multiple post cards, so I nixed that idea.

I planned to come back on the sketch and telegraph idea mentioned above (below? who really knows, button machines, am i right?) but I don't have the right kind of lead in my pencil and I couldn't find a properly licensed and accredited telegraphy operator within walking distance (I no longer drive ,ride bikes, or walk too far on account of my slippers having worn out ).

Not someone to disappoint or let my friends down,,,,the backup to the backup plan was crank up the ol EyE PHONE and snap a pic. Again, as luck would have it there was a filter on the damn thing called "Dramatic Cool" that thankfully took ALLL of the guesswork out of getting the lighting right, and so forth, as it were. You barely even have to pay attention to what you're doing to get really good pics, as you'll see.

Notwithstanding and with that said, with no further ads due I'll go ahead and share this with you. As it stands, this is my JACK TAYLOR project , ready for paint.



Just kidding, It's not ready for paint yet. First I need to cut the "extra pieces off", prep it for the battery attachment point, weld some things back on, and so forth. You folks know how it goes.

Did you see those lugs? Look at the dropouts? If you did then you noticed my 1988 "Brian All-Star Team" trophy, so you know you're dealing with someone who knows what the hell they're doing.

I bet you guys don't even know how to weld aluminum, do you?

Psssh.

I know you're going to want more so hold you're horses, i'll be back somewhere between 2-162 weeks assuming I don't succumb to welding zinc (not recommended).

Just kidding. I probably won't be back.

I say a custom name would go well with the planned upgrades. Jack Taylor? Bo-ring.

How about Jack Schidt?
