TOMMASINI Super Prestige, Campagnolo C-Record Delta, 55.5cm (1986/87)
Irio Tommasini was born in early 1930s, in Grosseto (Tuscany), not far from Siena. He began his life as a framebuilder under the supervision of Giuseppe “the Magician” Pelà in 1948 while working in his factory in Lombardy, northern Italy. Pelà was a highly respected builder, but usually built for other brands (Pelà was building frames for Faema Team in 1968-1970). Irio Tommasini worked closely with him, so he learned and improved his own craft. At the Pelà’s factory he worked in the Racing Section (Reparto Corse) and turned his hand to whatever was needed. In early 1950s Irio Tommasini build bicycles that would be raced by champions, such as Louison Bobet, the first three-time Tour de France (1953-54-55) winner. In 1957 Irio Tommasini founded Cicli Tommassini and relocate to Grosseto where he started to build his own bikes.
In late 1970s Tommasini lauched their top model ”Prestige” and immediately became very popular. Later in mid 1980s the Super Prestige was released. Like all Tommasini frames also this one shows extraordinray details of lugs which were carefully filled and customized for highest performance: large ”T” cut-out from underside of bottom bracket, Tommasini’s logo engraved on the rear brake bridge and seatstay tubes. A trully work of art.
Happy to present this beautiful example of Italian cycling craftmanship – Tommasini Super Prestige. The frame is work of art, made of Columbus SLX, featuring the perfection and attention to details to providing the best performance you might expect from 1980s steel bicycle. Build with Campagnolo C-Record groupset, iconic Delta brakes, Mavic clinchers wheels, San Marco Rolls saddle. No much words needed.
Nice catch for any vintage bike lover. Fair price.
