Description:

Certainly one of the evergreens of serious classic bicycles collections: the Alberto Masi Prestige is a true masterpiece by the famous frame builder from Milan.

Produced between 1975 and late 1980s, the Prestige is a sought after piece of cycling history. It was the first model, Alberto Masi designed on his own. It was meant to be a slightly modernised version of the Gran Criterium which was his father Faliero's masterpiece. This exemplar dates back to Feburary 1985 and sports a paintjob refurbished in pearl white.

The frameset is most likely made of Columbus tubes (Masi never disclosed which tubes he actually used to manufacture his frames) and shows many refined details and a perfectly fine lugging, very typical for each Masi bicycle.

This suberb frame is married to a legendary groupset - the Campagnolo 50th anniversary.
In 1983, 50 years after the founding of the company, its anniversary was celebrated by producing a special limited groupset. After an initial batch of 5000 pieces was quickly sold out, Campagnolo decided to make some more. These groupsets proved to be very popular, yet orbitally expensive. Even today the 50th anniversary parts are considered some of the finest for vintage bikes. When mounted on a bike, they immediately turn it into a proper show piece.
But our Masi does not only look amazing, it also rides like a dream. Just the right balance between subtle steel comfort and agility.
