Can you believe I found a similar frame in the garbage bin last week? Actually it was a Sintesi, an inferior model, but still made with Tommasini lugs and Columbus tubing.
The fact is that the Tommasini factory is in Grosseto, the little Tuscan town where I live, so it's very easy to get a frame (I remember paying 250 euros for a Columbus Foco tig welded frame in perfect cond., with carbon forks by Look and Campy record headset). Besides, no one wants lugged bikes anymore.
Whatever the reason might be, throwing Tommy frames away is a bit too much...

I'll look around. How much do you want to spend? Lugged or welded?

Sorry for the long time replying. Actually I posted very much with tongue in cheek! I wish I could find one in a bin!! You lucky person.

If one turned up at a very competitive price I suppose I could be interested? (but how would I get it from Italy?)
