The orange '74 with the Twin Plate crown popped up on craigs list just as the dust was settling after I got home from Velofest. It been up for a full 24 hrs, I was surely too late. But I called and made date to see it. I could see in the craigslist pics than many parts were wrong, but unfortunately once I saw it in person, I could see it appeared to be a repaint, albeit a very good one... the seller confirmed that her father had sent it to Masi in the 80s to be painted. I assume the top tube braze-ons were added at that time. She had done a bit of research and still had a ok price on it, but the repaint allowed for a good discount. The parts were whatever was on hand at the time of the paint it seems, all good stuff.

Her father rode it proudly in the 80s, she mentioned he would only wear red socks when on it. People sure are funny.

so to sum up my observations:
1. swap meets
2. craigslist

3. time capsule
4. updated and modded
