How did you acquire such a rare bike? Is there a story to it or did I miss that?
A couple months ago I did a search on The Cabe and read all the threads related to Alexander Rocket bikes. There was a thread in 2015 called: Alexander Paris Texas Rocket Bicycle Count off.

One of the posts was a picture of three frames on the ground (two boys and one girls). Anyway I called the fellow Caber, who posted the image, and asked if he would sell one. After some thought he agreed to pass the bicycle on to me to which I am very grateful.

Can you post your findings? Or the link?
From my research, there was a small fire in 1946 caused by gasoline fumes but not much damage was done. In 1974 there was a significant fire to Alexander's building (this was after his death). Likely the later fire affected a group of bicycles, including my example, that were then purchased by a Cabe member in 1985.
