HI All,

In 1965 (66?) I visited Faliero at the Vigorelli to pick up my second Masi Special. When I arrived, he presented me with a bike that had drilled dropouts, fork tips, rings and levers. But I refused it, telling he in my best Italian, and hand gestures, that I thought the bike would be too fragile. He gave me a knowing smile, as if to say I agree (or was it to say "you're a fool?"). He told me to come back in three weeks for another bike. Now, that's the one that got away.
