Vintage Alex Singer - $4,000 (Plaistow NH)


Beautiful 1972 Alex Singer with many extras. If youíre looking at this you understand how rare these bikes are. Included with the sale are many extra parts such as a TA French threaded crankset and pedals, Huret rear derailleur and shift levers. The bike is in immaculate condition and absolutely stunning.
Pedals in the photos are not included.

This one could go straight to Jack at Franklin frame and be made whole for far less than $1100, probably closer to half that, even if not you could be in this and know for a fact it is good, right and yours, mine, etc.

I have an older ratty offset crown, rusty chrome fork one that is a bit small, panto stem and SP that has been languishing for quite awhile.

I need to dig it out and decide what to do, almost sent the fork out after I got it but failed, ef me.

The Merz's, Strawberry's and Paramount's along with a few others overran the program.
I am aware of Franklin and was getting ready to send him a frame right when Covid happened and then that got put on hold. In the time since then his web site crashed along with all of the info I needed. I finally tracked down his # last year, called and he picked up when honestly I was expecting voice mail. I frantically wrote down pricing on what I was interested in on a small note and now of course I have lost that note. IDK what he'd charge on the dropout but I think he said 1 color was $450 - $500 + dropout cost lets guess $150 and RT shipping $150 so $750 - $800 total costs

Please lMK if you decide to sell that frame - if its my size I would definitely be interested especially for the stem and SP

If you get it, you get, if not, well.....

The cult is real. I'd have suggested, if you wanted a 3rensho to look at a zunow as a bit under the radar. this seems to be 10+ year old advice- Zunow are now also 2k+ which means repair and paint is 1500, frame is 500... you are in the ballpark and have fresh paint. Now, this only applies to 3rensho. Zunow paint is gonna cost you a lot more. .

This bike has been posted here a few times now and I sure don't mind if people keep posting it. It's a beautiful bike and probably deserves its own thread. I know I'd like to know a lot more about it. Just don't see an Alex Singer pop up on CL. Anyway, thanks for posting.

I knew Yoshi when I lived and raced in Japan and he had agreed to build me a bike when I was there but I was in Osaka and his shop was outside of Tokyo. A very expensive ride on the Shinkansen or a flight which as a starving bike racer I couldnt afford then sadly. Yes I have huge regrets now that I didnt somehow make it work but living there was a struggle for me at that time. Anyway if someone from the Forum buys it at least they will have a better idea of the repair costs before the purchase.
