I guess I don't understand the point of the above about "congfente (sic) touches" (Ken, fur krist sakes, use your spelchek).

A Masi from Verona has to have three holes? Mario Confente never built a Masi without three holes? A Masi built in Verona is not stamped with a "V"? A bike from Vigorelli (in Milan) is not stamped "M" for Milan, but "V" for Vigorelli? I would accept as fact that the letter stamped on a Masi indicates the city it was built in.

Let's see. Which would I believe? The letter stamped into the steel of a bottom bracket with a steel die, or an invoice? I pick what's stamped on the bike frame and not what is typed on the invoice!

Free Ken??? The guy is running loose on the streets of Boston as we speak!!!
