Manufactured between 1975 and the late 1980s, the Prestige is a cycling masterpiece designed and built by Alberto Masi in his Milanese atelier. It was meant to be a modern version of the Gran Criterium (his father Faliero's signature bike), with which the Prestige shares a unique attention to details, meticulously filled lugs and an austere elegance.
This Masi Prestige dates back to the first production year 1975 and is in original condition. The frameset is most likely made of Columbus tubes (Masi never disclosed which tubes he actually used to manufacture his frames). It perfectly illustrates the famous Masi attention to details and materials.
This suberb bicycle is equipped with Campagnolo Super Record parts from the first generation, Mavic tubular rims, A Donelli saddle and 3ttt cockpit.
This rare first generation Masi Prestige is ready to be ridden and is perfect to take part in your next Eroica adventure.
Italian cycling heritage at its finest.
