i gave it to my friend, it was too big for me. He had it repainted at Tommasini (in our hometown) here's the result... I've already offended him for the saddle...

Actually the frame was in a terrible nick, but fortunately it had been sparayed in blue so it had no rust. The bin was in Grosseto, Tuscany, where the Tommasini factory is and where non-carbon bikes - especially if lugged - are considered junk. respraying was expensive tho...
AND the components are new. In the bin I found frame brakes and stem

Stunning (and for me would look even better with a black saddle)

A furry dice on a Maserati? Furry dices are quite common accessories on those 1980s shoe box Maseratis that only pimps use.
He's going to change the saddle, tho... hopefully.
