What everyone has to understand is that OP isn't sharing this project to present it as an original Masi. Instead as a fan who really wants a Breaking Away Masi.

To suggest this is a counterfeit, forgery, or deception implies he's selling it as an authentic Masi or movie used bicycle.

Hes being creative and bringing one if his holy grail bikes to life.

I don't hear eBay sellers getting bashed for repainting frames and selling for ridiculous prices. A repaint doesn't deserve a premium. An original does.

I applaud OP for the job he's done and effort. Thanks for sharing.

One more thing. What are the chances of OP getting an authentic Breaking Away Masi?..He can't and neither can I.

So let's make one instead
