Richie,

Holy smokes; I turn my back on my computer for a few days and next thing I know all hell has broke loose. I haven't had time to go back and read all of this Masi debate, but I have a question.

Does anyone know anything about when and possibly where Pela made Masi frames. Any chance someone knows which of the letter designitations might be Pela; "A" perhaps. For some reason I feel my 1962 Masi special was made by Pela; it has an "A" in front of the 50(cm). Any ideas?
