Many months ago Jim Allen kindly supplied our list with the Masi paint color names, specifying which were Italian enamels and also describing the base and topcoat.

My GC is yellow with blue accents in the windows, BTW, probably an Italian enamel, which was still being used on some of the San Marcos frames he said. He did a great job cause the original paint still looks great, unfaded and with few blemishes.The unitiated are surprised at how old the bike really is.

Thanks Jim and...

Best Wishes, Mark Cutrufelli in Laurel,MD

Mine has yellow windows, white "Masi" on the downtube and dark blue "Brev. Masi" on the stays. The remaining decals are accented in yellow.

Thanks for spinning-up the way-back machine, again.
