1994 Tommasini Sintesi

Definitely off the market.

Just received another opinion from different local builder after we did some further paint removal.

Cleaned the damaged paint and chrome and happily found clean metal underneath.

I'm keeping it.

Someone almost got an incredibly good deal.

I'd take it if you can send a frame-stretcher along to make it a 62. Beautiful frame!

I'm looking to trade my 1991 Motorola Corsa frame and fork for a high-end road frame set that has a 52cm top tube (or so) - this one has a 54 ST and 55 TT.

Update: No longer looking!

Now that's a beautiful bicycle.

Shame it doesn't fit you better.

I have a nice solid 1987 or so Cannondale road frameset 54cm that I would like to trade for a more modern generic cyclocross or touring frame. It says Criterium on it. It looks nice but has scratches and chips on the paint but overall it isn't bad. Paint is a turquoise/blue. It is a bit too much of a bike for me. I like triples and longer wheelbase frames. I like 54cm frames but 56cm is okay with a sloping top tube.

I had a full Sante groupset on it but I have removed it to sell the groupset by itself but if you want that too, then we can trade semi complete bikes.

Maruishi Road Ace 7. 61cm frame, trade for a 57-58cm frame. Looking for a touring, or relaxed geometry frame.

This bike is too big for me. I have ridden it hard for a few years, my daily commuter plus about 5000 miles of loaded touring. It's too big and I am finally fed up with it. I would like to trade it for a 57 or 58cm frame. I would like something that I can tour on, as I have another commuter now.

The paint is pretty beat, the underside of the downtube is the worst, from touring without using fenders. The frame is structurally sound. The headset is pretty worn out and probably should be replaced. Although it might only need to be cleaned/adjusted, it's a $10 headset.

I will be stripping all the parts off and only getting rid of the frame, fork and headset. I would clean it up before shipping it to anyone, but the paint is not going to look pretty. The "Road Ace 7" decals on the top tube are worn off from me not being tall enough to throw my leg over the tube.

The frame is triple butted lugged cro-moly, the fork says Ishiwata on it so I can only assume it's an Ishiwata frame as well. I think this was a highish-end frame, I think from 1986.

If I could convince my fellow retiree expat to sell me his 74 Raleigh, we might be able to work something out. He hasn't ridden it in the 6 years I've known him, and knows I'm ready whenever he is. I prefer something slightly bigger than a 58, and this could fit the bill well.

My appologies. Should have updated the post. The frameset is no longer available.

21.5" top tube ctc
22" DT.
