Tam and all,

That is the crown (along with other styles) that goes with 24mm round bl ades. The "twin plate" style crown fits 22.2mm fork blades. Has anyone e ver seen a '71ish Masi Gran Criterium with a fork that has those blades and that crown? I have! It's original to the bike and everything. I rece ntly restored a GC like I have described. Road bike with a track fork. P retty much like the Masi frame Mario Confente built for himself when he first came to Carlsbad in 1973.

It looks like the seller went through the trouble of removing the fork t o provide a photo of the steerer tube. Good on him, as the year of the bik e is now firmly established and any reservation about the originality of the fork as a Masi product is rendered moot.

If the winner is interested in selling/trading the Wolber wheel covers please contact me after the auction. I would pay $150 for them or perhap s trade one of my covers that would be more appropriate (ie. Clement) for the Masi. My Huffy needs new clothes. :-)
