Very nice. Thanks for sharing the link. Such lovely, long lug points and fork crown! (Tip: Enter the URL as a Google search, then click the "Translate this page" link beside the search result for a rough English translation.)

Yes, thanks. I will probably not find one of these in my size but they are fun to see. I do find it interesting that the Fork crown and bottom bracket shell was a very constant selection by Masi for decades. Note the long extended seat lug tang below the top tube, another attribute that he returned to a number of times and Alberto applied too.
