I know it's not an Alex Singer but I always thought these were a nice bike because they slip under the radar, price-wise, and probably quite a nice bike for the money. I believe they are the best thing Takara marketed. Oops! Forgot Takara had a Dura Ace racer as well. Unsure who made these (Kawahara? Mitsui?)

The Tributes had water bottle bosses, brake cable bosses, and shifter bosses which I think) no other Takara bikes had. Seller has been listing this and the price has dropped, I suspect he will accept an offer...

This one is for the bike enthusiast who knows their history! Men's Vintage Takara Tribute Bicycle. 25" rim, needs new tires. Frame, bars, chain, pedals, seat, storage rack all in great condition. They don't make bicycles like this anymore! Takara has quite an interesting history!

Having followed some of the other threads about making "tribute" bikes, my first thought was "WTF would someone make a tribute to Takara?"

After reading the rest of the post, I agree that is probably a nice bike slipping under the radar.
