Why would one be more historically interesting than the other? Masi with a lineage that goes through Coppi, Merckx, Simpson, Bracke and branches off into the very interesting California story and Waterford which is the only real Schwinn bike left! Lacking a Masi history (so far,) I'd suggest anyone interested read the book "No Hands," the history of the Schwinn bicycle company which was published in 1996 or 97. David Feldman
