Alberto Masi

Here are some photos courtesy of Greg Honn of Milano Sport. Back in the late 70s Faliero Masi sold the rights to the Masi name in the US. Alberto, his son, was unable contractually to sell bikes with his own name to buyers in the US. Greg Honn started importing bikes made by Alberto Masi under the Milano Sports name.

Alberto Masi was always an innovator and brought the internal lugged steel frame, the Tre Volumetrica 3V, to the market. Until I saw these images of Greg's on Ebay I did not realize Alberto ever made aluminum frames. Greg says "I had this built for local pro Matt Crane when he was an amateur." It is made from Dedacciai V107 tubing.
