Finished up the build on this 85th anniversary frame. It of course carries on the Tommasini tradition of not only looking amazing, it rides amazing as well. The photo does not do the cromovelato/retinato paint justice. It is black cromovelato paint (had quite a time deciding between red or black), which in some light has a blue cast to it, I love it.

Speaking of Tommasini history, anyone know when/why the signature on the top tube went from "Tommasini Irio" to Irio Tommasini"? It seems many of the older frames had the last name first.
