What part of it is fake? The frame looks to be a Masi from that era. That could explain the brakes, right? I understand your point about it possibly not being a team bike, but it is still a nice bike. I also understand your animosity toward all things from this seller. I don't know whether that is a "Boston" thing, or just that you are ticked off at him for some reason. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL

The point is not the brakes-this was a Faliero innovation in about 1968 to prevent to many holes being drilled into the brake bridge-but who cares-- the brakes are attached to a FAKE-this is NOT a Masi-Ferretti. It's a fraud designed to fool us. I can't believe that no one is saying anything abut this. Who cares about the brakes! George George Hollenberg MD
