A fellow told about this site after I posted some pictures I found on the net of the Alex Singer shop on the practical machinist web site.
I found this photo of Ernest Csuka, in the background is what has been indentified as an old Pittler lathe. Machinist are crazy over this kind of thing, also the quality of brazing was instantly noticed. In the third photo is the Pittler lathe.
I have one of these bikes, bought in 1970, for a considerable sum for the day.
Well ,the bike is holding up better than me as can be seen.
I hope some find this of interest, I have enjoyed this bicycle for all of its years and really have not found a better one.
I work in my machine shop and having to stand on hard floors all day, riding a bicycle has always been needed therapy for that.
