1976 Masi Gran Criterium MC65 #0511
A true "Barn Find"
This bike was ridden maybe 100 miles before being hung up. The tires are not glued onto the wheels, so I think the wheels have 0 miles on them.
This was a "buy it now" off of eBay. The guy selling it did not know what he had.
This is the first "used" bike where I do not need to change anything. The full Super Record group includs ALL the correct TI bits. The stem is long enough. The cranks are no date 180's. For some reason the 27.2 seat post is marked 27 even though it measures 27.2
All the Masi touches are there. I had to sacrifice the small yellow painted cable end caps while cleaning off the inches of dust and grime. The cable housing was rotting. I replaced the front brake pads because I did not trust the very old original Campy pad. The bar tap was also rotting away. Aside from the cable housing, brake hoods, front brake pads and bar tape this is exactly the same condition as when the original customer hung it up to leave it to rot.
