Faliero Masi 1966 Road Bicycle. 50.5cm
Masi Special road bicycle, dating from approximately 1966. This bike is a fine example from the time when Faliero Masi was at the top of his game, building a name for himself as one of the top frame builders and bike fitters in the world. Each Masi from this time represented a considerable investment, custom sized to perfectly fit the rider. Consequently they were generally kept safe and secure, a bike to last a lifetime of careful riding. This particular model is indeed in very sound condition, especially considering its age. The paint has just a few scratches, and some steel is visible under the bottom bracket. We have decided to leave it in its original condition rather than touch it up. Someone has polished the logos on the seat tube a little enthusiastically, and they are lightly scuffed. The down tube Masi logos are in good condition, and the bike is very tidy overall. The group set is in good condition, and everything operates well. Components have been left original where possible, with just a couple of small tweaks.
Bronze / steel early Campagnolo Record derailleurs, in great condition. Universal Super 68 brakes, with matching drilled levers. Black rubber hoods in great condition. 120mm Campagnolo Record hub set laced 32/32 to gold anodised Nisi rims. 1960s Ambrosio 38cm c-c aluminium bar and 90mm stem.
