Attention all listees living in or visiting the Kansas City area.

The gents at Midwest Cyclery are the luckiest %$#&'s around! Someone walked in off the street wanting to sell a mid 70's Masi Gran Criterium. Bike is in tremendous shape, light blue, decals over 95% intact, all Campy Nuovo Record, 175 mm arms, absolutely gorgeous. Naturally they snapped it up. Talked to Jeremy at the shop who pulled it off the hangers for me to inspect. Yowza! They haven't decided whether to detail it and sell, or keep it as a museum piece. Stop in and take a gander.

Extra details: Bike is a California model with Mario's signature on the left top tube. Brazeons are BB top cable guides, chainstay derailer cable guide and one set of bottle braze ons and that's all. No shifter bosses or brake cable guides. Lug work is super. Straight lever quick releases, bumpy campy shift levers, nutted brakes, low flange hubs, Martello (?) rims, NR pedals with strap loops, etc, etc.
