Subject: [CR]"Vintage California Masi Frame and Fork" on ebay

I bid on ebay item 3676880394, 60cm 1976 Masi frameset. Bid too much, but the lemming in me wants to join the OG Masi Owners Club so bad. :)

What do you think of it? "There is some discoloration about the bottom bracket (come sort of chemical reaction between the atmosphere and the brushed chrome surface over time)." Sure looks like rust.

Seller rauchg53, are you here?

Are all the decals to restore it still available? Who has them?

I am not a fan of chrome frames, I'd probably have it painted, maybe have the braze-ons that were added removed, but what do I know? I was eight when this frameset was built. Advise me? I'd restore it and build it with period stuff, and I'd definitely ride it. Oh yes.

Anyway, hoping the collective you has got something to tell me about the frame, maybe some advice. And if one of you beats my bid: Good luck and enjoy it.
