i was one non-lurker than e-spoke to scott about this frame. i 'suspected' it was a repainted 70 gran criterium <because> it had a graphics package that was newer than on my 71 masi's. (i have TWO of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). and though the frame of scott's has the 60s style flat-seatstay-top treatment, i know of other early 70s gran criterium frames that have this element, thus nixing the notion* that this frame is/was a masi special repainted as a g.c. no ph!cking way... e-RICHIE oh. the 'C' stands for chester... *nixing the notion? get me the bongos, baby! i mean, who uses this lingo anymore????????
