Masi Prestige 2010

Completed the Masi Prestige build up today. I am pleased with the result. Can not wait for spring and when I finally can try it for real.

 

Group is a 1993-4 Record 8V, except for Super Record seat post and Centaur 10V front derailleur (polished to remove Centaur markings). When I find a band mount Record 8V front I will replace it. I choose this group as I plan to use the bike but still wanted something classic looking. It was a decision based on parts availability and aesthetics.

 

I got a remark about the saddle being tipped forwards - It is not. It is just the perspective making it look that way. The Selle Italia Campionissimo/Fausto Coppi does not have a flat top and when mounted correctly with the center part lowest and in the middle - the front part actually is pointing a litte upwards. The picture does not show that.
