OK, I guess I'll buy that. I didn't think about the NS when I was looking at it. I know Masi sold those things but I don't usually consider them in the same context as the Masi Special, Gran Criterium, or Prestige. I hated to see them sell a second tier frame like that. You always want to keep your heros on a pedestal.

thanks for straightening us out.

Sorry again Ralph. Did not mean to impugn your honesty at all. Just thought you were mislead on this one.

It's a Masi, just has the wrong decals... it looks like a Nuova Strada but it could be a Gran Corsa. Late 80's.

I may not be the definitive expert, but I've never seen a Masi with these lugs, fork crown, brake bridge, cable guides, pump peg, and fade paint. Anybody else?

A repainted M_________?

Sorry Ralph.
