Description: Since 1952 the Masi Atelier located at the famous Velodromo Vigorelli in Milan has manufactured some of the finest road bicycles which has been appealing collectors worldwide ever since. A Masi is definitely a bicycle which should not be missing in any serious collection!
Launched in 1970 the Masi Gran Criterium is one of the most sought after Italian bicycles ever manufactured. Inspired by the racing bikes that Masi had built for Eddy Merckx the Gran Criterium is perhaps the pinnacle of Faliero Masi’s achievement. The exquisitely filed lugs and double fork crown are clear indicators that this is a bicycle for serious racing. Masi rarely disclosed which steel tubing he used for the Gran Criterium, but it’s presumably made either of Columbus SL tubes.
I bought this bike 2 years ago in Milano from an elderly man, he bought it new in 1971-72 from Masi bike-shop at the Vigorelli. So there Im here, and Im going to sell a unique piece of history!!
