".......it's not too much of a stretch to group it with Brian Bayliss's incredible reproduction track bike that he brought to Cirque one year. I can't remember the brand, but it was just perfect. Sure, that was a bigger job than the Masi restoration, but there is the same passion and love in both."

Harv, That was a Colnago repro. MUCH nicer then anything to ever come out of Ernestos joint, in all due respect. At least the stuff that came into the hands of the masses (and 99% of what went to the elite racers). And then there's Baylis' repro chrome Masi Track. You ain't NEVER seen a chrome job till ya seen that one! Oh boy, get cho rayban's! "Passion" and "love"; the two most important elements to life. And cycling.
