Scott and crew

I have a Faliero decalled MAsi (it says Faliero MAsi on the dt) That i recently purchased from the original owner(he was some sorta of physician for pro-athletes if i recall right).When i first saw the bike ,i was dubious,,becuz i never sseen a masi with such decals and most of all,no serial number.The "Doctor"told that he had Faliero built him such bike as a sign of friendship.Before purchasin it,i took pix and sent them to ALberto in MIlano,askin info and tellin him what the guy told me(Wheels are Mavic set donated by MOser after a race in MOntecatini)He replied me a day later with the following email:

Subject: R: info regarding Masi bicycle

Dear Mr. Brandi Thank you for the information. I can assure you that the bike shown is surely a bicycle produced by Faliero. Bikes of that type and with those decal sets are very uncommon (no more than 4 were made)The fact that there are no identification numbers is possible as these bikes were only intended for a few friends and would therefore be considered 'special custom orders.' I no longer have any similar decal sets, nor any spare parts etc. The bike would have been produced between 1972 and 1974, however I couldn't be more precise.

Thank you and best regards, A. Masi

I showed th eemail to a "notorious" list member which he kindly translated it for me. Ill probably bring it to ALberto(along with ttwo other masi i have) sometimes this month.so i can ask him more questions about it.Ill gladly send thes epix to anyone ,and ill also send them to Greg fletcher Masi-site(Dale,ill send them to you too,just gimme a sign!)for public view and enjoyment,so ,stay tuned!
