I am looking for a 55 c-t with 55 top tube but thought someone responded they were looking for a 56cm. Gary Hobbs at GVH has a used and refinished one that I would gladly pay the $375 for if it only fit me:

I was in a shop yesterday, Bicycle Sport in Charlotte, NC, and they have a used Tommasini Sintesi in your size. It's a beautiful bike -- yellow and red. I'm not sure what the price was, but it's in very good condition and I think it had a Shimano Ultegra group. I would have been interested but I need a 56 center-center. Talk to Simon. Their phone is 704-335-0323, or www.bicycle-sport.com.

renassaince cycles has the most beautiful Casati. it aint cheap at $725 + shipping but i doubt you can find an italian made steel frame that oozes anything as sexy and classic.

56 x 55 - blessed with beautiful chrome and just check out those seat stays/cutouts where it attaches to the seat tube lug, long dropouts, chromed headtube lugs and full chrome fork. i dearly wish it sells as the more i see it the more i want to sell the merckx frame and swap my parts onto it - in a new york minute.

listed under classic european/ frames

its new and just reeks of "let me flex my italian style" and purity. when casati show their stuff they could walk over the big names and this frameset is an example.

what more could one want ......

some of the money you have paid for it will end up with the Saratoga Brewing Company :-)

the seller is super fair and had sent me a bike with easily the best packaging job i have experienced.
im sure the Scapin will be a great ride .
