EDDY MERCKX Faemino, made by Faliero MASI, Campagnolo Nuovo Record, 51cm (1969-70)
Faliero Masi was born on May 11, 1908, well known as ” The Tailor ”. He learned the art of building custom race bikes at the “Compostini” workshop in Florence. It’s Cicli Compostini that Masi began to race, participating at two Giro d’Itala (1931 and 1932). In 1949 he moved to Milan and started with custom frame building. Masi had a maniacal passion for every phase of the construction of a bike, built by hand, one by one and was responsible for writing many memorable pages in the history of cycling. Each of his bicycles is unique and considered a jewel by collectors and fans.
Eddy Merckx ”The Cannibal” was born on June 17 1945 and was a professional cyclist from 1961 to 1978. Cycling fans consider him to be the most successful cyclist in history, with 525 victories to his name. He won the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia five time each, has won all of the top events except for the Paris-Tours, has won the Vuelta a España, has won the World championship as both a professional and as an amateur, and has broken the world hour record. Merckx joined Team FAEMA in 1968 and stayed there till the end of 1970. His bikes were mainly made by Faliero Masi, a few also by Giuseppe Pela. Masi’s bikes performed really good and that’s the reason why most of the top cyclist in 1960s-70s were racing on his bikes.
Proudly presenting another highly collectible jewel – EDDY MERCKX Team Faemino, which dates back to 1969-70. The frameset was handmade in Masi’s famous workshop at the Vigorelli velodrome in Milan, Italy. Very likely made of Reynolds tubing (Masi never told exactly what tubes he used). Like all his frames also this one shows extraordinray details and lugs which were carefully filled and customized for highest performance. Same as Eddy, also our bike is built with superb Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset, Cinelli stem and handlebar. Love at first sight.
Very nice catch for any vintage bike lover. L’Eroica ready.
