At L'Eroica's show and swap in 2006, one vendor was selling an intact 1968 Masi Special (58CM) for 800 Euro negotiable. A few tire kickers but the bike did not sell. Jamie Swan and I briefly thought about buying it, shipping it home and flipping the bike here but decided against it.

I saw only a few riders on Masi. Lots of Bianchis though.
