The above issue goes beyond authenticity,most of the famous names that appear on frames have little to nothing to do with who actually did the work.The majority of the Masi,Cinelli,& others were made by contract builders who were building these frames for the owner of the name.If you want to debate the issue most of these were in fact not made by Faleiro,Cino,Ugo,or Sante. I maintain if you want the person who's name is on the frame to build it; you need to look no further than Richard,Brian,Peter,etc.These folks not only put their name on it:they actually create it.
