I'm presuming this is indeed on topic due to it's lugged construction....
It is definitely a real Masi. I know because I have one exactly the same as what you provided pictures of. Mine was bought NOS and imported through Torelli and is from the mid-late 90's vintage. Mine was originally painted by CR list member and Masi painter Jim Allen (I think that's his name) and a few years back I provided the serial number and he was able to identify for me the date and color he painted it. I use mine as my daily rider this year and as my winter roller bike. Very stiff frame. Mine is equipped with off topic Campagnolo 2003 Chorus components. I'm traveling right now but if a pic or two of mine would be helpful let me know and 'I'll snap a few once I get back home this weekend.
