Hey all.

I'm wondering what a Masi Special would have cost in 1962. Brand new with the usual Campagnolo Record group and sew-up wheels. Chromed lugs, with smoked seat-tube. What, for instance, would Peter Rich have charged a customer for one back then?

I'm doing a bit of research on collectible premiums..how some bikes seem to sell for the equivalent of their original *new* price, and some sell for a lot more.

It's relatively easy to establish original prices for 70s bikes, but 60s bikes are a little harder to get a bead on.

Please e-mail me privately, as well as to the list.
