I think the air was already around in the 80s.

The battery in the speedometer however...


Got me on that one! :lol: Plus I suppose also the glue on the tubulars as they were newly glued.

Fashion is often cyclical. In the early 80's it seemed as if everybody wanted black anodized components, now with the overdose of black seen in all the carbon parts, there is now a return for many people to alloy finishes.

Nice Masi!

As for the bottle cage, it dates from the 1980's and is made by REG. Perfectly in keeping with the other components. This was also the model that was favoured by Colnago at the time but the Colnago ones generally had a clover leaf cut-out. They were prohibitively expensive back in the day (at least for my budget).


Here is Colnago-cage I own and what I know it is made by ALE.

Please have at the bike. Any scrutiny/nit-picking is welcome.


Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but what's the background of Maasi?
Is it an Italian brand? Or Spanish? Any connection to Masi/Massi? Not come up with much searching the internet.

Great entry, Readview. Did you acquire that bike complete or is it result of years or months of collecting?

Thanks Mel,bought the frame from the U.S,the rest of the bits were bought over a long period,i decided on AX because of the top mounted braze on for the shifters but did rather make a rod for my own back as the AX stuff is murder to get hold of in decent nick :)
