Many of the Tommaso bikes were built by the Billato Brothers in Italy. Buy it now!

got it for $120, the frame has rust spots, particularly in the chrome. dura ace/sante components, cinelli bar/stem, perfect condition mavic ma40s. the wheels alone are worth the price of admission for me as i have a perfect bike for them. now ill debate how to tackle the restoration. theres a serious lack of good custom painters that will paint a bike frame around here. ill post pics a little later

at this point im going to assume that the chrome is too pitted to save, i think i would have to ship out of state to rechrome and possibly repaint. i might try some steel wool + wd40 at some point first. i hate when good bikes just get left out in the garage to rust away. thanks for the advice guys.

Well played.

Not worth a repaint unless it's a forever keeper.

looks like someone tried to sand it off at some point. so the chrome will have to be redone. as far as forever keeper, im in the fence. normally for a c&v i want to keep it forever, but i have a friend thats expressed interest in it as a starter bike. these bargains are far in between here as people tend to overprice things to the umpteenth power. ive been lucky to find the 5 bikes i have now for the prices they were going for.

what model/year would this be? restored value vs current value? thanks in advance
