$400 to $600
SLX, chrome, paint in good condition it looks like.
if you like 80's style fade paint schemes, this is a nice example.
tommaso was a TSD house brand but it was probably built by Guerciotti, and painted in US with Imron.
at 400 it is a good deal.
at 500 I am arguing over the (original looking but probably fully functional) 7spd components.
at 600 it is a great way to relive ones youth and glory days of racing.

if it had period correct Campy, it would weigh 24lbs and go for a cool grand.

I have bought two SLX Tommaso's, both of which were in the Boston market, and paid $300 for one (full Dura Ace...but, this was a spectacular deal) and $500 for the other (again, full Dura Ace). So the suggestions at $400 is a pretty good price range...

Those are dura ace calipers not shimano 600. That bike is in very fine shape so $400 is a good price and it could easily go for more.

I would normaly say $400-450. But I really like the paint and general feel of this one so I'm with Thrifty Bill this one is something special worth a bit more than typical $600 or so. Just a great looking bike.

To me this is all flash and no sizzle. The brand isn't that well regarded IMO, it has some 600 bits (nothing wrong with them, but they don't help value) and I've usually found that barcons limit value...I think $400 as well. I would not pay a dime over personally. It is clean and has a look at me I'm Italian paint. On the plus side, campy hubs.

edit - I'd go to 450/500 for the wheels and headset. Ideally I'd get this as a donor bike I think.
