Tommaso complete !

Finally finished making some changes to my Tommaso ! It now has a complete vintage Campy Super Record 12 groupset, Brooks B17, matching bag, tape and hoods. Would anyone happen to know what model it is? I can't find much info on them. Certainly not my fastest (or lightest) bike but a real kick in the pants to ride. I have not ridden a down tube shift bike since..........70-72?

Is that new or original paint? Very beautiful.

Center those tire labels over the valve stems for a pro look.

Pro look is tubulars that don't offer you an option for label centering.
That stem is epic though.

Looks great. But if I have to nitpick, I don't love the look of a silver stem on black bars. Really beautiful though...

Have to admit I don’t know what those are? All I changed from the time I bought it was the seat, tape, hoods and brake levers as they were Shimano.

Perhaps someone else removed them. Normally you would Just remove the old worn brake pads or blocks and slide new ones into the holders.
