Certainly one of the most typical classic bicycles you will find in many serious collections: the Alberto Masi Prestige is a true masterpiece by the famous Officina from Milan. Produced between 1975 and the 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 signature bike.
This exemplar dates back to late 1970s and it has been refurbished in an elegant champagne colour. 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. Very interesting are the seat stay caps with two separate slots, rarely seen on Masi bikes.
This suberb frame is married to a legendary groupset - the Campagnolo Nuovo Record. Together they are a perfect match and a terrific classic. The equipment is then completed with fine parts like Nisi rims, 3ttt saddle, stem and bars with Almarc leather cover.
The bike has been thoroughly checked and is now ready for anything. Eroica? No problem! Long distance touring? Sure! Riding to the gelateria for some fine ice cream? Be ready to turn some heads!
