Richie and Bob,

As Richie points out, there is such a thing as a Masi with a non Fischer BB shell. Richies bike is about 1970 or so. Also, during the period that Masi was useing Nervex Pro lugs, they used the Nervex BB shell. I think Nervex lugs and BB are on Masi generally between 1960 and 1963 or so. My bike is '62 and has the Nervex shell. The bike is "normal" for what it is.

I know of several bikes out there like this one.

my 71 eenie GC has a non-fisher shell. i've never seen another frame like it. the pic only shows the bb cutout, but trust me, it's NOT a fisher sand casting. e-RICHIE..................And he gang!!!! aka Richard M Sachs Chester, CT

Except for Gephart's Masi Track bike (see CR) which appears to have the same Nervex patterned BB as this Ebay job... Unfortunately, the pic of Brian's Nervex-lugged Masi does not show the BB... what kind of BB has your bike got, Brian?
