What about recent 3V's with "Alberto Masi" on the TT? I assume these were not for Masi USA? I believe this is what Performance has.

What's the obvious clue(s) noticable from a poor picture?

Also, any knowledge or guess as to whether these Masis of question would have the same geometries used for the US Masis, or a Mondonico geometry? Or was the Masi geometry even a constant.
