1986 Tommaso

I built this bike from a used bare frame; the paint is original by Cyclart. The frame workmanship is excellent and the ride is classic Italian road bike. The CroMor tubing is a few ounces heavier than SL, but on the road, I cannot discern the difference. The original fork was lost to time so a nice Columbus SL fork from a Chesini was used. This is my experiment with 1980s Campagnolo; it works well and contributes to this classic Italian.

More Info:
I have found that newer Shimano cogs really perk up the shifting for old school derailleurs.
