Was everybodys opinion on using pantographed bit is a bit ott or do they complement a build.

I have a panto seat pin which is not fitted and i have seen a stem to match.

The bike in question is my Tommasini,

For a bike of that quality I would say they are a given!

If you got 'em, flaunt 'em! 8) 8)

For bike of that type I think it's be too much.

Pantographing seemed to go out of fashion when faded paint jobs came in round the late 80s/early 90s. Pantographing seems to have been a mid 70s-mid 80s thing

It's the icing on the cake for some bikes but for others it's like too much vinegar on your fish'n'chips.

Photos of the parts you are considering might help me make a more educated comment though. Timescale wise your bike is borderline. The ergos are a period early 90s upgrade and you can get away with them. But Panto parts with them would be Widow Twanky.
