The Colnago decalled Masi on ebay #270121482035 is a Masi Special or maybe one of those rare & sought-after 'transitional' Gran Criteriums. I'm sure that the Usual Suspects on the list will be able to fill in the details. DB Ak NZ

That's what it said: "Used Masi Bicycle."

Item number 270121482035

Having trouble figuring this one out. It has the lugs with the cutouts, and the characteristic Italian Masi BB--I don't know the brand, it's different than the GF ones used in California. The BB is stamped M56. I'm willing to believe it is a Masi. It has had a number of braze-ons added, and has been decalled a Colnago. The things that puzzle me are the number 1 on the BB, and the flat treatment of the seat stays at the seat lug. To me that seat cluster says older bike.

No relation, etc.
