Maybe you remember me mentioning Eroica Cicli in a blog introduction? Well, I’ve been following their work and in a recent trip to Italy, Andrea visited the Vigorelli and the workshop of Masi. Inside his shop he was given a look at one of the rarest bicycles on Earth.
Check out this beauty below!
This is not just some Masi built in California. It’s the real deal! Much like other Vigorelli Masi bicycles, it has all the craftsmanship that made the Masi brand a highly-sought after name in Italian steeds.
Until you get to the chainstays and you realize this was for a very special racer.
By now, you should recognize those colors and frame proportions. This is one of Eddy Merckx’s team FAEMA bikes. Built especially for the Cannibal, it’s one of the rarest Masi bicycles on the planet. This was too good to wait for a post in Merckx Mondays!
Andrea, keep up with the awesome work! I’m super jealous!
