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 the racing level Campagnolo Super Record groupset, mavic rims or Masi branded 3ttt handlebars.
Legendary and in pearl white colour also very elegant bicycle.
