Once again a reminder: there will be a MASI FIESTA at the Velo Rendezvous in Pasadena in October. It'll be here before you know it. Have you made reservations yet? Southern California in October is almost always just paradise...so make those reservations now!
What's a Masi Fiesta?! It's a gathering of some extremely nice Masis, from the early 1960s, or earlier (if we can find one), all the way to the late 1980s, or later (if we can find some..even a current KOF Masi would be welcome...and if a couple of beer-can Masis show up, well, hell, it'll make for a nice contrast)..with emphasis on Masis from the 1960s through the late 1970s. But ALL Masis are welcome. If you have a special Masi, please bring it! And if you have a Masi Special, by all MEANS bring it. And if you have a Masi Speciale we'd REALLY like to see that! (Alex Clarke, you gonna be around??? <g> )
We hope to have some very nice bikes from Matt Gorsky, Jay Van de Veldt, Brian Baylis, and yours-truly. I'm also really hoping some of our Bay Area friends will make the trek, including Peter Johnson, who I have not heard from as yet, but who has some beautiful Masis. As does Rex Gephardt, and I am really hoping he brings a couple of them. Again, I have not heard from Rex or Peter, but I hope they'll be there.
Either way, this promises to be an impressive array of Masis, and worth seeing. Again, if you have a nice Masi, bring it! No such thing as too many Masis here.
And we'd really like to see Masi memorabilia and paraphenalia. Cards. Pictures. Jerseys. water-bottles. Posters. Catalogs. Caps. Anything and everything Masi..please bring it, if you have it!
Please note well!!! There will be prizes for the three best Masis. Something worth having too, I promise.

Should be fun. Always is.
