My pink Tommasini Prestige

Hi friends, I obtained this Tommasini a few days ago. The pink has begun to grow on me. :-) I believe it is all Super Record or close to it. It has Campy everything except the 3ttt stem and bars. If anyone knows about these bikes, I would sincerely appreciate an approximate year. Thanks again for all of your time, feedback, and comments. I appreciate them.

Nice bike. I usually dont go for pink bikes, but i would go for that one if my size. That looks like a 58cm? Columbus tubing?

I would give my left nut for that frame. Or at least a ton of bike parts.

Nice! I have a 1996 tecno in blue (my dad bought it new)

I hear tommasini will help date frames if you contact them.

Beautiful - I am partial to pink, too! And the patina is just right - not too bad, but not pristine; it shows it's been used but not abused.

I'd peg it around 1985-87 going by Bicycling magazine advertisements and such. Components are mostly SR although the brake levers are NR - pantographed Ciocc, BTW. You might sell those on Ebay and get a set of pierced SR levers Gotta love those track pedals, too.

Nice score - especially if it fits you!

No, I think it's your phone. It looks like plain old cross-three to me.

That is a gorgeous find, and ditto to DD's comments above. It has the perfect amount of "use" in the finish. Congrats.

Are you reffering to the pedals straps?

They look pretty nice in blue, also, but that pink is an eye catcher, for sure. My guess is that you love the ride quality. I certainly do...

I just looked.

Couldn't find one within 30 seconds, so I gave up.

Feel free to start one. I'll toss mine into the ring.

Pink frames do grow on you, and then they become a lot of fun! Love that bike.

Great bike with a wonderful Gruppo and in the condition I like. I'd pitch the bottle cage though and get an Elite Cussi (older style with the plastic retainer or the round rubber, gold painted retainers) or even a REG or Cobra or a French TA. I'm sorry - I'm too picky!!!! It is a bike I would love to have in my collection - I love it.

Level that saddle, rotate the levers down to level, then add some brakes that work and that will be a great bike!
...I kid I kid, kinda.
That frame paint is super cool and I would love for something similar to hang on a hook in my garage.
