Tommasini Tecno ?

I recently purchased a Tommasini Tecno frame on ebay, which was listed to be a mid 80's frame. I'm thinking that it's later than that, maybe early 90's. Anybody know how I can find out?

I don't know much about that company other then I know they make very fine lugged steel bike. And that bike seems like it's in excellent condition. You scored well roadhopper.

Not a mid-80's frame, you are right. Unicrown forks (unless one-offs) were bleed over from the then-expanding mountain bike industry, and more appropriate to late 80's-early 90's introduction. There also weren't many bikes before this timeframe that adopted the through the top tube cable routing.

That is really nice, by the way. You should let us see more when you get it built up.

Any idea which Columbus tubing it is made with? I think you will be extremely pleased with that frame!

Steel is columbus extra EL leggri (at least that's what the sticker says ). Yeah, i'd love to build it up with campy parts of the same era. I'll definitely post pics as the build progresses. Don't get me wrong, i'm extremely excited to build this frame up.

This frame type is what they are making today.

The T diamant on the seatlug is only one indication i guess.

You can write to toma in italy and give them the frame # than Barb will be able to tell what is what and when it was build.

You can also go for the air fork this was i'm 99% sure original and authentic.

Nevertheless toma's are very desirable so congrat's on the purchase.
