The Sante group would indicate upper middle level. Is it Columbus SL or SLX? The sante components alone may be worth as much as the frame if not more, they are somewhat collectible.

Post pics.

We'll help you.

I've had more than a few, and still have a Sintesi I'm rebuilding (yet again) this winter.

Very nice framesets, that's for sure.

if the parts are original to the frame when new itdates to about '88/89ish. bikes like this are sometimes hard to pin down a real "model" as often times they were sold frame only and 'kits' sourced fro other vendors. I know Bianchi never really had model name for the RC frames and I do not recall if 10spd Drive had models or just identified frames by tubing.

but please post pics when it arrives.

I read your post in the main forum.

So, is it a Tommaso then?

yes Pinch bought a Tommaso

we will have to see is we can get a moderator to change the title here.

personally I always hought that was why 10Spd Drive came up with that name in the first place.

man.. sante. god i haven't heard of THAT since probably 1987! not a super long lived gruppo that i remember-- and i don't think i ever saw it on a bike. i think they scrubbed it pretty soon after starting to make it-- so i'd think that'd put you easily in a few years of 1987- and as i remember it-- it was up there with 105 and dura ace-- i think it's basically in the slot of ultegra now.. but it really has been a while!
