It's really too bad it doesn't have the original paint and decals, so now it just another Roadmaster POS. I was offered quite a few of these in the 2 years I was at IUB and wish I would have bitten at the time. They ride alright and make a fine bar bike. They can be had with original graphics at the end of the year for about $50 from graduating seniors. Alas there is nothing of Masi in these bikes and can't be lumped in with them in any way or form. best, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
