Battery is fresh. Posts are clean. Ground is clean. Even if the alternator was weak it should still crank.. ?.

Sounds like dirty/loose battery connections. Also inspect negative cable on frame and motor. If loose or dirty it can cause this type of issue.

Bad alternator wont cause it not to start if battery is fully charged.

Possibly solenoid/starter connections. Also could be starter relay failing.
