Since 1952 the Masi Atelier - located at the famous Velodromo Vigorelli in Milan - has manufactured some of the most prestigious Italian bicycles of all time.
The Masi Special was the top of the notch of 1960s Masi bicycles made under the supervision of Faliero Masi himself. Widely known as "The Tailor", Mr Faliero Masi manufactured extremely refined steel frames which brought countless champions to epic victories. Thanks to the success in competitions, Masi frames has appealed also to regular riders and collectors ever since, so much that the Masi workshop in Milano has become a sightseeing for many enthusiasts.
This particular Special has been fully refurbished and it receive a fiery red paintjob. It is fitted with a correct-period Campagnolo Record gruppo of the very first Record generation. Universal Mod. 61 brakes, Nisi rims and a comfy Brooks saddle complete this high profile build.
Masi from earlier years is getting harder to find and with appropriate components, even more difficult. This nice Faliero Masi will certainly be a noble addition to any collection.
