    Old rider from Wa State

    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.

    Oooohhh, beautiful! I'm extending an invitation to join us over at the Classic & Vintage forum, so that everyone else can ooh and ahhh over your Singer.

    What part of the mountains are you from? Would that user name be a reference to Harley Davidson Factory Certified?

    Stop by the Pacific Northwest forum, and say hi to the rest of us locals, too.

    Welcome to BF!

    HDFactory - welcome to BikeForums! You have a beautiful Alex Singer there, the photos of the shop are great as well. I'm sure you have all the guys over in the C&V section falling over themselves drooling over the photos. They love photos of well taken care of old steel frames. I've got a few myself.
