Just writing up some words on a memorable day at the Masi workshop inside the walls of the Vigorelli Velodrome in Milan and thought I'd post a couple of pics here...

Nice photos, Augustus, thanks for posting them.

When did you take these? Is Masi still working there? Did you visit just to take the photos and see the workshop?

3 or 4 years ago I'm sure I read that an American company had bought the workshop and name (I'm aware of the existing Masi brand in the USA, it's not that) and that it's future was uncertain - I think I read this in a magazine, maybe Roleur or The Ride.

Anyway, good to see a proper craftsman and an old-fashioned, characterful workshop.

Thanks.

I think I went there a year or two back. Alberto was there welding away and kicking back with his mates. It was all go. The hand painted Campag poster/ wall upstairs was so good. I think I already posted that here recently, not sure.
