Certainly one of the most typical classic bicycles you will find in many serious collections: the Alberto Masi Prestige is a true masterpiece built 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 1982 and sports a typical dove blue paintjob.

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 would make a terrific classic if equipped with Campagnolo parts.
But Masi bikes do not only look amazing, they also ride like a dream. Just the right balance between comfort and agility.
