Well after what seems for ever i have finally got all the the bits to put my Tommasini back on the road.
I am just waiting for a Tommasini sk2 saddle to come from Italy and a pair of Record deltas from the states.Then all being well i will be riding it (weather permiting) next sunday.

Her are a few pics for you,

The bike will be built with a mix of 8 speed record.chorus and athena.In the long term the chorus and athena will be replaced with record as and when i can find suitable parts.

Bet that looks stunning in the sunshine :) my Tommasini will be coming out of hibernation soon :)

Same as yours but in red and built up with a mix of Record and Chorus :wink: it gets laid up over winter but is my main road bike through the summer :)

Only trouble is they always draw crowds whenever you stop :D

That is going to be absolutely drop-dead gorgeous! I like the fade/herring-bone type finishes. They typify the era exactly.

I would really like an early 80's Italian frame - and the spare cash to properly equip it!

Looking forward to seeing it finished.

It's worth having a word with your local tool stockest I got a 3.5mm allen key for 0.80p there's nothing special about them - as some adverts on ebay would have you believe....
