I fell off the wagon yesterday and bought another bike. It was hopefully just a moment of weakness and not a full on relapse.
The bike is a Masi 3V Team. I am guessing it was built sometime around 1993 based on an article I found. The bike uses oversized Reynolds 753 tubing and internal lugs. It is actually pretty unique.
My question is-- where was this bike? When I went to look at it I was thinking it might be a Mondonico built bike, but I am sort of doubtful now. I read some bikelist archives and a few other pages, but I couldn't find anything definitive. My best guess is that these bikes were actually built in California, but I am not sure since there is a sticker that says it was imported by Torelli.
I think the bike is going to fit me perfectly, but I won't know for sure until I put on some wider bars and a 100mm stem. And until I remove all the DA7700 and put on some Campy.
The only thing I don't love is all "sponsor" stickers across the top. They are original and under the clear coat. I am not sure if those could be removed. And maybe I will get used to them.
