Old Tomassini....what is it?
I found this old Tommasini in a dumpster and had to stop and give it a look. It has shimano components, brakes, crankset and its a freewheel. The fork may be a little bent and it probably needs a new wheelset and tires but other than that its pretty gorgeous. The frame is about as good of condition you will find in a dumpster.
It has NO serial number...which is odd. I took it to two bike shops they were unsure as to what model it was, they both agreed it was quite a nice frame.

Nice find, wish i could pull a decent road bike out of the dumpster
What does the Columbus tubing decal say? There could be a serial number on the steer tube of the fork. It is a shame it is bent but it looks like an easy fix and I don't see any damage to the frame.
What a lucky find, is it your size?
It's a nice frame, probably late 70's early 80's, which makes it a little earlier than most of the Tommasinis you run across. At the time, I don't believe Tommasini was making a wide model range, so it's surely a high-end frame - the actual model name really doesn't mean a whole lot. It's not at all odd that it has no serial number, by the way - a lot of top Italian builders (Masi, De Rosa, Colnago) weren't using them at that time.
nice find... I also have a tommasini but I paid a pretty penny for mine... sorry no help on the id. What are the components?
