many thanks to those who have replied with suggestions, but they have either been sold, wrong size, or turned out not to be what I am looking for.

I am looking for a 55 c-t, 55cm top tube late 80's early 90's steel Tommasini in excellent condition with no dents, dings, or rust.


I know of a Tommasini for sale...Lone Gunman

That I believe is a 56 x 56cm. Whole bike though. It was a bike from a bike show, has a chrome fork, is black with light paint spatter on the frame as a final artistic finish. The down tube is shaped, not quite ovalized, more a teardrop shape. The bike is owned by a Manager of REI in Cary, NC. It has Campy parts on it. It was offered for sale during Cycle North Carolina. To find the owner, contact either REI or CNC and ask for the Manager of bike techs that was on CNC.
That sounds like a Diamante with Columbus MS (Multi Shape) tubingTig

I saw a black one like that in the late 80's and I knew I had found my next bike. I ran across one my size in red and equipped it with Campy the Croce D'Aune group and Chorus hubbed wheels for the best ride of my life. I miss it dearly! One crash too many...
I picked up a Diamante this past summer...Duke249

It has an absolutely incredible ride. The Tommasini geometry is dialed in for long, all-day rides. Very laid back and very easy to sit up and remove/put on clothing in even a decent cross wind. I'll be posting a picture on the gallery as soon as we have a sunny day in N.Indiana. (could be awhile).

Frank -- What did you find out about the Sintesi for sale at Bicycle Sport in Charlotte, NC? I could have sworn it was the size you are looking for.
