I really like the look of that Tommasini , though the starting price is usually where I finish :( Happily it's too big for me :)

As an aside, was out riding this morning and on the way back caught up with an older guy on a sweet 80s Bianchi, Columbus SLX, chrome forks and stays, Shimano 600 brakes and a more recent ergo campy drive train. Nice bike says I. This old bus, it gets me along says he. Want to sell it says I? No, says he. Worth a try says I :D

It is when you're selling it, it isn't when your buying it & it seems that it is whenever you're trying to source parts to fix it.

But then that applies to nearly everything. :wink:

Sorry you didn't win

I was keen on this Hillman frame, unfortunately someone else was slightly keener.
I like how seat stays are parallel with the down tube, seat tube parallel with the forks.
Maybe net time.

I know the person who won this! It's gone to a good home and it will be looked after, if that's any consolation :D

They got that for a song. Headset and seat post are worth more than the final bid.

the advert is clear: 'only frame and forks. no headset or bb bracket.'

Well yes I guess so. Still wish I'd grabbed it for that money, but fair enough, that's the open market, I could always have bid more.

Attention Retro-giants in Sydney. Something noice, unusual, different. 'Bernard Hinault' Simplex RD, no less. Now that would test the rusty DT shifting skills.. :P
Priced OK if it doesn't move.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

She is a rather elegant grand dame... And being sold by someone who knows how to post a pic or two; nice change :D

Nice Euro front-left brake setup. Even at double that it'd be a nice buy. Quick paint or PC and clean up the parts, blingy L'Eroica ride.

You could be in luck amrjon, turns out she won two frames and this has become surplus. PM me if you're keen, I'm sure she'd sell it to you for the price she paid.
