Breaking Away Film Used Bicycle at NAHBS


While there may not be any specific bicycles I expect to see at NAHBS, a film used bicycle from the 1979 movie Breaking Away was not on my list. There were apparently three identical Masi bicycles used in the making of the movie, and this is one of them in all of its lugged and non-area lever glory on loan from a private collection.
