Anybody got an opinion on this Gran Criterium? Owner says it has never been repainted. Has signs of being Italian (no serial number, "M-frame size" stamp in the usual place). Top tube and shifter braze-ons hint at a later bike, but I thought these items appeared after the name change to Prestige. But even if this is a "transitional" bike that received both braze-ons and Gran Crit decals, there's still a few other oddities... I've never seen the Faliero signature decal that far forward, and not on that side, not until the very late 70's American frames. Stranger still, that fork crown... it doesn't look like any I've seen on a Masi (so far). Any ideas?
