    Our Singer store here in Austin had the exact same machine treadle version in a cabinet just as show. That decal design is called "The Red Eye". I wouldn't mess with a motor either; treadles are so classic.

    I almost got excited, until I realized this machine was in Maine. I actually have a spare motor.

    A new belt for the treadle run about $8 so you wouldn't even have to spend $35 to get it running. I hope you get it but have to be fast for those FREE offers.

    That cabinet is beautiful!!! So is the machine, working or not. I'm far from Maine, however. Thanks for sharing.

    Is there any word yet from the person giving away the Singer? I wish you luck. I would love to have it myself.

    This machine would be a good candidate to attach a handcrank--no electricity needed...it is so much fun to use and it is great for teaching young children to sew.

    Well, I got my mother's old Singer and put a new motor on it myself; got it on the internet. For those old machines WITH a cabinet, that is not a bad deal. I would jump on it if I was close enough.

    I just posted to the lister asking if it's still available..I'm hoping it is as the cabinet that came with my Red Eye is not in very good shape. I'll keep you all posted..It's an easy 2 hr drive for me. Wish me luck!!!

    For that money, I'd remove the motor and take it back to a treadle.

    Great piece of furniture, even if you never use it as a sewing machine!
    If the motor is shot, it would be easy to convert to treadle - leg exercises?
    I'd buy it in a minute if I were near.

    if this hasn't already been said, it's probably a moot point. i would bet it's gone.
