>> Seller tells me this logo on my 83GC is called the Masi World Cup logo (Is that correct?): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180296756593&ssPageName =A DME:X:AAQ:US:1123

Close. I suppose that one could be called the "World Championship" logo (be cause of the stripes).

>> I see this logo (name?) on Alberto Masi bikes and modern USA Masi ( may be elsewhere too):

Technically, this is the later/current US logo, because of the green shield shape in the center. The one Alberto uses (which appeared on Masi bikes bac k to 1954 or so) has a cerulean blue shield.

As for a name, I'm not sure... in my experience, logos and decal sets in gen eral are usually designated by date or by some descriptor that collectors co me up with themselves. As far as I know, they have no "official" names.
