Tommasini Super Prestige 1982 Italian steel road bike in great condition. Columbus SLX top-of-the-line tubing, Original owner, Original Shimano 600 groupo with 12 speed click shift. Mavic clipless pedals and 52 / 39 chainrings. This was a Tour de France quality bike in its production year. This is an antique bike that still rides like a dream and will not wear you out like modern bikes due to its high-end steel frame. Lightweight, solid and compliant.
No explanation is needed for old-school riders who have ever ridden SLX steel tubing from the '80s. Original paint still shines, but there is some expected bubbling around cable braze-ons on top tube. Bike was over $3,000. new in 1982, so you can figure what that would be in today's dollars. Compare to similar Tomassini Super Prestige bikes on E-Bay for much high prices. Best fit probably for 5'10" to 6'2" riders. Only going up in value.
Would make a great bike for old-school rides or daily training and has always been a head-turner with paint scheme and chrome fork and stays. Always, always kept indoors and maintained. Amazing ride quality.
