Not made for US market, named after a US drag race team for Italian market, and certainly not a Tomas, as the other poster stated.

Yes, do you? This was the post referenced: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...1#post14037783

I will excuse your poor English, and just place you on ignore. I can see why you were kicked off the Italian forum.

Ok enough of this please. Back on track...

Does any one else have any catalog scans, etc.? Of course more bike pics too!

Does anyone know when Tommasini started using Tommasini dropouts, as opposed to Campagnolo?

It's official, I've earned my membership into the Tommasini Lounge.
 
I've lusted after Tommasinis since I joined this forum and now I finally have one to call my own. It's a hair too big, the paint isn't great and I'm trying to sell stuff to downsize...but I couldn't pass it up and I'm very excited to have it. It's a product of the 'frame doesn't fit' thread. No tubing decal and I can't see any rifling so I'm assuming SL? Fully chromed. No chainstay bridge and "air" panto'd just under the fork crown. Columbus dove stamped on the steerer.

I need to decide on a build though. I have to keep this build very cheap since I really have too many 'racing' bikes as it is.

Option 1: 8s Campy with Mavic Cosmic tubular wheels...need to find some tubular tires and I'm not stoked about using the Mirage shifters and Avanti RD I have...
Option 2: Single speed with *gasp* flat bars...I have all the parts on hand.

Here are some terrible pictures.

Congrats!

Nice frameset.

I didn't spontaneously combust when I set up my Casati as a single speed.

Works great to be honest.

Beauty of a frame! You're going to love the ride, I guarantee it! Congratulations!Flash

Tommasini Air Prestige
 
3 Attachment(s)
I picked up this Tommasini frame recently. Not clean like most of the others in the T Lounge, but different none the less. It is an Air Prestige. It has Aero tubing (Nivachrome?) and a smokey glaze over parts of the full chromed frame. Can anyone tell more about the frame, painting process, etc? I've looked at several different sites and haven't seen another Tommasini with this type of tubing. http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=247605http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=247606http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=247607

Do a search on "cromovelato".

However the tinge of blue inside the seat tube suggests to me that this more likely an aftermarket respray, having stripped the original paintwork. Do the decals look like a recent addition (better condition than the frame?).

This thread seems to indicate what is indeed the truth - Tommasini did indeed use the name "Thomas" (not "Tomas") for some of his bikes. I've seen a number of examples, and came close to purchasing one or two.

not even really much room for debate, given the graphics: http://www.bdc-forum.it/showthread.p...11714&langid=1

However, rumors that he pruduced a model under the "Thomas" label called "The Tank Engine" are surely spurious.

Just found this thread and wanted to point out a couple of Tommasini posts on my blog. I also have a BUNCH of catalogs and brochures that I'll eventually get around to posting...
