Once again I'm offering a much-prized bike: my early 1960s Nervex-lugged Masi Special. True 56cm c-t.

Nervex-lugged Masis are extremely difficult to find, as they were made this way for a relatively short time. This one has been fully restored to exact, period-correct NOS condition, with paint by Brian Baylis.

She's an all-out show-queen, but would make an excellent rider. I've ridden the bike about 30 miles since I bought it, and it rides beautifully, like all Masi Specials of this kind. Plushy but fast. Classic italian road geometry from the 50s.

Parts are all period-correct in NOS or near NOS condition.

Price reduced to $5900 shipped in the lower-48. This price is firm.

Think about it...this is a very, very rare and sought-after Masi.

I really don't want to send this one on to the 'bay, so think if over and if you're interested, let me know.
