It is 50cm c-t and was in the very first batch of Masis Peter Rich imported to Velo Sport in Berekley in 1962. It was traded to Albert Eisentraut for some frame fixtureing. Albert gave the bike to his wife-to-be Carol as a wedding gift in 1963 when they married. I bought it from Carol a few years ago; nearly unridden and pretty much the way it came from Masi in Milano. It's black with the cream/blue fade seat panel and cream head tube. It's a very special Special; it's not anywhere near my favorite riding bike, but it's a great bike to own and ride upon occassion.

Here's a picture of the bike at the Velo Rendezvous 2001:
