1970's Alex Singer Randonneur

My stepfather informs me he is going to give me his 1970 original Alex Singer Randonneur bicycle...it has never been ridden as he had it hanging in his office...it is outfitted with campagnolo parts and a lot of the parts have been gold plated...he ordered it in the mid 70's...as soon as he hands it to me I will post a photo.....what would be the value of something like this

I would say this is your best bet for finding out on bike forums. They will want pictures.

I definitely want to see photos and hope you don't sell it. You'll also want to post it on the C&V forum and watch the drooling begin.

Sad that it hasn't been ridden. Hopefully you'll ride it.
