Masi Prestige Reynolds 753 eBay NICE

Masi Prestige in rare Reynolds 753 tubing – restored by Alberto Masi

1977 Masi Prestige. 1977 first version in rare Reynolds 753 tubing. Campagnolo Super Record.

Very nice Masi Prestige from November 1977. The bike has been recently repainted by Masi and completely checked and reassembled. The color is the original Coppi-Carpano grey (the color of the bikes from the Carpano team). The Masi decals are the original ones from the ’70s, not replicas.The code “0” punched on the bottom bracket shell (please see picture) indicates that this bicycle has been built using Reynolds 753 tubing. Masi built very few bicycles using this material and this bike is a rare example. The tubing is lighter than regular 531. The chainstays are thicker and more rigid.

Please note the “heart-shaped” motives on the seat lugs, under the seat pin lock, and on the cable routers on top of the bottom bracket shell. These are all signs of a custom preparation.

The collar of the front derailleur has been drilled personally by Alberto Masi in the ’70s and the original retaining screw has been upgraded to a stainless steel one (also in the ’70s).

The groupset is a complete Campagnolo Super Record. The crankset is from 1978 and the crank arms are 170mm long.

The rear derailleur has been upgraded in 1981 and the freewheel is a NOS Regina Extra.


A set of NOS Clément Criterium Servizio Corse tubular tires have just been installed. These are extremely hard to find. They haven’t been glued to the rim.


The bike comes with the original Silca Impero air pump, engraved Masi. The pump has an original Campagnolo metallic valve.


The original Alfredo Binda pedal straps have not been replaced, because they are still perfectly fine to use. An extra set of Alfredo Binda straps will be included. These are NOS and they are the hard to find buffalo skin version.


Two original NOS Masi Gran Criterium water bottles will be included. A yellow and a white one.
The bicycle size is 54cm top tube center to center and 54cm seat tube center to center.
The winner of the auction will receive a printed certificate of originality from Mr.Alberto Masi

Madison Street Bike by the Detroit Bicycle Company

JP special

It would seem a shame to take one of these black retro beauties out into the unforgiving pothole strewn streets of a Glasgow winter. It might be best to display the hand-crafted Madison Street bike indoors, perhaps in the living room, nicely leaning against the mantel. It certainly deserves a place next to other pieces of art.

Detroit Bicycle Company founder, Steven Bock, builds each bike to order from the finest parts. For those who appreciate high-quality bike parts, all frames are made with Columbus SL CRO-Mo tubing and Nova lugs. The Madison Street’s main attractions are the beautiful copper-plating of the Campagnolo and Cinelli parts, track rims with Vittoria Zaffiro tires and the inimitable Brooks leather saddle.

Each bike is customised, so prices vary, complete bikes priced at $3,200 and up, up …. UP

Chris Chance on Cycle EXIF


Chris Chance is a bastion of the American old guard of custom frame building. He started building road frames in 1977, and his mountain bike frame, The Fat Chance, in 1982. Pre-MTB road frames are highly desirable to collectors of American rolling steel, and Mac Spikes is one such enthusiast. So far his collection consists of a 1987 Fat Chance Tandem, a 1985 Fat Chance kicker MTB, a rare pista frame and several Chris Chance road bikes, including this one, a custom frame from 1997.

With a paint job colorful enough to rival Italian steeds of the era, it’s a singular example of Chris Chance’s enigmatic work. Mac has built it up with a Campagnolo Athena gruppo, and while the limited edition ‘Contador’ LOOK Keo pedals aren’t period correct, the yellow is a perfect match. Sometimes that’s just as important. Check out Mac’s collection on his flickr.

A pashley for 6 grand

you have to be having a giraffe – a steel roadie for 6 grand – makes the steel Condor bikes and even a custom Italian Pegoretti or 3Rensho seem like pocketmoney territory ….

from ROAD.cc

Pashley are making a splash at this year’s Eurobike with the prototype of their new super-high end all steel Sprinter race bike, the Stratford on Avon company is also reviving the GB component brand and the new sprinter features GB bars, stem and seatpost.

Made from Columbus XCR tubing built up using hand made lugs with classic road bike geometry – parallel 74° the frame weighs a claimed 1.7Kg, in all its polished glory. Oh yeah, and it’s got a solid silver headbadge.

Noises from Pashley are that Sprinter will be available as a complete bike built up with Campagnolo Super Record and it’s likely to cost around £6,000. That sounds a lot but then talking to Paul Vincent, ex-Cycling Plus tech ed and the co-designer of the Sprinter it becomes clear that an awful lot of development time and man hours, have gone in to both the bike and the components it’s built up with.

The GB bars (GB stands for Gerry Burgess) are made from aluminium but the stem is milled from a solid billet of ultra-hard bespoke Reynolds stainless steel tubing as are the frame lugs. That Reynolds tubing is so hard that it is very difficult to polish.

There will be more GB products on the way including track nuts, toe clips and a seatpost made in the same way as that stem.

Pashley are marketing GB componenets as a joint venture with Jeremy Burgess son of the late Gerry Burgess and they will be making the components available to other manufacturers… but only if they manufacture in the UK.
