58cm 1974 Alex Singer Corsa on eBay

Alex Singer Corsa frameset | eBay

Something special, something slightly too small for me... Feel as though it could find a good home around here if anyone is inclined. Serial #1688, apparently one of three made at the same time for an order out of Boulder, CO.

-Gregory

(p.s. I reckon c-t it's 58cm, the seller quoted 57 c-c... I'm just used to the English way!)

Pet peeve = zip ties on the fork, it still bangs around and can still chip the paint and is not cool aside from that.

If you tie a piece of rope or a twisted rag securely around the crown race, then the zip tie up top is fine, unless it slips off, best to use two.

Was this from the Boulder Bicycle shop? I bought chainrings from them years ago. What ever happened to the web presence if anyone knows?

They went on hiatus for the Auburn bike show and last I looked at the site it sounded like he/they were contemplating a longer term shut down.

I think that Singer might have been on Paceline not too long ago, so an interested buyer might search there, maybe for a little discount.

Personally I think you should leave the HS in a used frame your selling, although some even remove proprietary seat binders when parting out a frame which should be a criminal offense
