There are 8 other Masi's depicted on the Fixedgeargallerry.co site. You can scroll down the page on the side to "fix me up" and type in the marque of your choice. Perhaps these Masi's should be rescued from their fixie bondage by MASI ( Masi Adoption Society International) Please send all donations to me for this cause and I will contact the owners (e-mail addresses are always listed) and buy them back to be restored by qualified list members , or better yet, auctioned at Le Cirque. Its Christmas Season folks,these frames need to be saved from the tattooed hordes that ride them wildly through our land and they need to be guaranteed a warm home or hung on a den wall. Please give generously,my bretheren and sisterens, Faliero will bless you. Art Link,San Antonio,TX,USA

Does anyone else think that bike doesn't look very "Gran Criterium"-like? I'm not sure I've ever seen any Masi with double taper seat stays, as that bike appears to have. Same for the fork crown. And I don't think I've ever seen a Gran Criterium with those lugs.

I suppose that bike could have been a later, Billato-built, Gran Corsa, but I'm not very familiar with those. Of course, I defer to our more expert Masistas on this . . . but, notwithstanding the former decals, I don't think that is a GC.

stuff like this makes me sad, but I'm preaching to the choir. Are Masi's co mmon trash in California?

OK, it mostly steams me because Italian bikes are so rare in Idaho-I think I've seen three in ten years...
