White Masi GTC

I'm not sure what the "GTC" stands for. This is the thread title @Classtime said he was waiting for. Maybe "Gran Turismo Criterium"?

Anyway, here is the build that I was contemplating in the "Change My Mind" thread. No one changed my mind, so if you don't like it you have only yourself to blame.

3x9 Daytona drivetrain with ultra-rare nutted Centaur dual pivot brakes



If you transform a bike in your stable so much that it feels like a new bike, is that a special case of N+1? This could be a second solution (following the zero bike) to the s-1 problem.

Masi GTC (Grand Touring Criterium). It’s a beauty. It’s perfect. The yellow is icing on the cake. Every GC is best dressed with such a pocket square. When my son ( with the same saddle height as me) starts riding more, his n+Masi GC will have the yellow touches.

At some point I need to paint the space between the fork crown plates yellow. I'm not sure why that was neglected when it was repainted. They used yellow fills in the other obvious places.

Andy,
Just the right amount of yellow and the tube caps are a nice touch. I think every Masi needs a bit of yellow. Smiles, MH

...and now, it will get the riding love it deserves...!

Daytona/Centaur stuff is way under-rated.

The only thing wrong with this thread is not enough pics of that gorgeous machine.

Great job Andy. The yellow is perfect. I would have wandered into "to far/self doubt" territory with a yellow saddle. Done it a few times, then back & forth. My youngest ride is a 3 X 9 Torelli GranSasso. One of a handful with its Veloce spec upgraded to a Centaur/Daytona Mix. Love it. Don

Nice drivetrain upgrades yet she still has that nice classic look. I would be temped to check out the condition of the chrome under the white paint on the twin plate.
Got a '72 Bottecchia that you got me thinking about now.

Well, the rules do say that saddle and bars should be carefully matched. What that means is less clear. In this case I was helped by not having a yellow saddle.

Here are a few detail pics from before the rebuild.

That is tempting. I love me some chrome. The trouble is getting the paint back on there if the chrome isn't good.
