Milan has a lot to be proud of.

It’s the home of Masi, Cinelli, Prada, Valentino, and Versace to name but a few luminaries.

Whatever is in the water there has made for some pioneers that have influenced design and fashion for all time.

It’s no secret that a Masi has always been one of the bikes I always wanted to own.  With it’s confused history I knew that only a Prestige would suit my style and one day this particular one fell into my lap.  My size and in amazing original condition.  It’s seen the Strada Bianche of L’Eroica twice, and has even been back to it’s birthplace in Vigorelli to be blessed by Alberto on it’s 30th anniversary.  I don’t see myself ever parting with this one.

Thanks to the help of Lotdeux, Melbourne felt like Milano if only for a moment.
