1974 Masi Prestige Cronometro. Milan 1974. 54cm c-c.
Reportedly one of only four made, this cycle was presented at the 1974 Milan Show. Built in partnership with Faliero Masi, Alberto Masi revived the milled and reinforced chainstay design that Faliero used in the 60's on time trial cycles. This cycle is fitted with a complete Masi-modified, Campagnolo Super Record component group, including custom-milled hubs, brake capliers, brake levers, and shifters. Well preserved example of this rare cycle, with original paint, finish, decals. Former scratches on the chainstay (from chain lash) and a small scratch on the downtube has been expertly restored to original and is invisible. There are no scratches, chips, dents or any flaws on this 100 points concours show bike. Original decals are prefect.
