together. But Jim Langley faced a much harder decision: whether to
have an expert replace the down tube of a rusty Masi Gran Criterium.

    wow the Masi will be a interesting restore , I think Jim should try to repaint it close to the original color , even I have seen plenty of orange ones . yes it may not be worth the money but it has a great story . I would bet Baylis built it from some of stories I heard about Masi USA or he did 90% of it
