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 notch of 1960s Masi bicycles and made under the supervision of Faliero Masi himself. Widely known as "The Tailor", Faliero Masi manufactured extremely refined steel frames which brought countless champions to epic victories. Thanks to the success in competition, Masi frames have appealed also to regular riders and collectors ever since, so much so that the Masi workshop in Milano has become a pilgrimage spot for many enthusiasts.
This particular Special has been refurbished and is fitted with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record Gruppo. Since Campagnolo did not manufacture brakes back then, this bike is equipped with fine Universal brakes. Furthermore we find 3ttt stem and bar and a Brooks leather saddle.
The wheelset has been freshly laced in our workshop using old Campagnolo Record high flange hubs and NOS Record tubular rims. It is then fitted with brand new Tufo handmade tyres.
The bike has been completely inspected in our workshop and is ready to be ridden.
