|Any one with info on a late 80's Tomasso. (I already checked with Mr. Brown - no info) Frame is Columbus CroMor and made in Italy. The ST is 54 with a 54.8 TT. It still has the Ten Speed Drive serial# sticker on the ST. Looks like IMRON paint. Equipped with a mix of Suntour Superbe Pro and Chorus Synchro II.
I guess I am looking for some info on who the original manufacturer was and if anyone has more specific geometry. Not looking to see if it is worth the price - I paid 20 bucks at a yard sale.
Thanks in advance.

Looks like they were the Ten Speed Drive "house brand", made by Bilatto in Italy and painted here in the USA.

|Yep, I worked there. That was the house brand named for Tom Eason who owned the company. They were built by Bilotto and painted here in Florida with DuPont Imron paint.|

|I did a cursory search on RBR but I should have gone further back. I later found the information that you posted a long time ago.

|I have a mid-80s Battaglin also from 10 speed drive painted by 10 speed drive. The frame is also Cromor. Great riding VERY comfortable frame. I rode a ton of centuries on this bike and it is now set up as a fixed gear. Congrats on your find. You got a heck of a deal.
