It's not a Masi,it's not about being a Masi. This bike is an homage bike to a GREAT bicycle movie "Breaking Away", an homage bike which in typical Hollywood cost cutting was a fake. Throw bricks at the movie maker if you will, but this is the essence of bike passion. In fact using the Trek frame set he has probably made an even better bike than that used in the movie. If the movie ended with a disclosure statement "No Masi bikes were used or destroyed in the making of this movie" would you feel better? I would love to see you at the Eroica showing off this vintage fake homage bike.
