Mine has been sitting for too long, so I rode it up and down my very cold street today!

73 masi

20170620_090146 (002) (1024x768).jpg20170924_161113 (002) (1024x768).jpg

Here is my 1973 MASI Gran Criterium built in Italy. It's probably one of the last one's built in Italy (not Alberto's) before production continued in CA. The lugs are beautifully filed and the paint/ decals are original. One cool feature is the Pino Morroni bottom bracket installed at the factory. I purchased this from the original owner. It's one nice riding bike!

Lot's of beauties here. I like the looks of that road you're on JoeBass, and I think our Masi bikes came out of the same pot!

Hey hey, a Nuova Strada appears among the sea of GC's!

I will add my '88/'89 to the mix. Built up with full 7400 Dura-Ace, something it should have been spec'd with as the catalog showed it available with nearly the full Campagnolo range or Shimano Sante. Sante is nice, but Dura-Ace is where it's at. Love the ride the SLX-SP tubing gives. Cinelli Criterium (65-series) bars are also where it's at.

Hey ROS, that looks like my old frame! I owned that(or one that looks exactly like it) a few years ago. Great riding bike, but I had other things going on so I parted with it. Nice work!

BTW, I have the MASI brochure that came with it. If you want it, let me know and I'll figure out how to get it to you.

No way! Did you sell it to an elderly gentleman from Bellingham? That's who I bought it from, and it had an eclectic set of components on it. 8184 on the BB shell. 64X as well. I've had a few different setups on it, but I like this the most. I took it out for a quick spin tonight, inspired by this thread. We're up for a lot more rain, so I wanted to get it in while it was still dry. Love the ride, every time.

That would be sweet to have the brochure for it, if you don't want it any more. I'm more than happy to drive over one of these nights and pick it up. Thank you!

Back in 1972 I trained for the Los Angeles Double Century (now "Grand Tour") with a guy who claimed that "God rides a white Masi." Whenever we saw someone riding a white Masi, someone in our little group would have to say, "Well, the bike looks like the real thing, but the rider probably isn't."

Here’s my Gran Criterium, with some anachronistic parts. I intend to change those brake levers one day.

I had the exact same frame in 62cm, but mine was built up with Croce d'Aune. Sadly, it was stolen after just 5 days -I still have not got over that 29 years later.

Man oh man, would that be a gorgeous bike to behold still today. Cd'A and a lot of C-Record era design is some of my favorite. Really really sorry that happened. That would stay with me, too. Did you ever try to replace it later on?

1992 Masi 3V Barcelona Olympic

Finished assembling this bike over the weekend with a combination of C Record and Chorus 8 speed. This model commemorates Masi victories at the Olympic Games.
An interesting quirk is that they mis-spelled Los Angeles. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet.

This thread provides motivation to assemble a few of mine. Thanks all.
I did buy a bottom bracket for one last week. That bike, a 1973 Italian GC will be less than period correct, IRD 50/34 Campagnolo "look" crankset.

I do like the "Barcelona" over the top graphics.
