Masi Prestige (late 1970s) – SOLD

Description

Faliero Masi and  his son Alberto Masi, are legendary icons of the Italian bike handscrafting. They have been preferred builder for many stars in the Pro peloton. Faliero Masi was handcrafting frames at the Vigorelli Velodrome in Milan in the 1950s, after a career as a professional racer and team mechanic.

Alberto Masi was born June 3rd 1943 in Sesto Fiorentino, Italy. At age 16, he was Fausto Coppi’s mechanic at the Giro d’Italia. In 1973 he took over the Vigorelli shop while Faliero and two assistants went to the US and began production at a new facility in Carlsbad, California. Later, Faliero returned back to Italy.

The Masi Prestige is a masterpiece, made by the famous frame builder and one of the most typical bicycles you will find in any classic bike collection. Made between

Proudly presenting this higly collectible bike from mid / late 1970s, made by Alberto Masi, one of the most legendary Italian frame builders and mechanics.
