Subject: [CR]1973 California Masi configuration


I need a little help in configuring a 1973 Masi. As some of you may recall recently Norm Hellman recently offered his 73 Masi and I just received it today. It's in very nice shape, It has nice patina, and I'm going to avoid my usual resoration mainia and build it up as found. So here's where I need the help. Would it have been built with 73 Campy components or earlier. I suppose it depends upon when in 73 it was made, and how much stock Masi California had on hand at the time. So does anyone have any information of what frame #88 from 1973 would have been built with.

Jim Ready Cupertino, California USA

PS Norm did a great job in carefully packing up the frame, I know it takes a lot of work to do that.
