Tommasini steel frames and bicycles didn’t chase trends. While some manufacturers lured their customers to the next “revolution” in the industry, Tommasini was a cornerstone of Italian cycling heritage. He created road bikes for road cyclists.
Beginning in 1948, Irio Tommasini began his craft and refined it under legendary frame builder Giuseppe Pelà. A former racer himself, Tommasini understood what was needed to get the most out of the material. This focus allowed him to hone his skills as an artisan, and ignore the buzz of industry trends. His unique approach quickly earned him the respect of other racers looking for expertly made machines.
Growing the production in the 1970s allowed his work to reach an audience abroad who realized the exceptional quality of his studio's work.
He started to market his frames under the second brand name Thomas for some years because he thought the name was catchier for people who did not speak Italian. When he realised that this was not necessary at all, Thomas bikes disappeared again and are now a bit of a rarity.
Our Thomas bike resembles in many ways the classic bike designs of the late 1960s. And it is equipped with the very best parts available back then. Campagnolo Nuovo Record is simply iconic. What's more many of the parts have been customised to reduce their weight, saving important grams.
The beautiful fork crown is a reminder of the attention to detail given to each piece of this bicycle. Together with the bottom bracket it also is a statement that the heritage of Pelà was not forgotten.
ConditionUsed. The bike is in great condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. Some scruffs under the downtube and decals a bit timeworn. All parts have been checked and are working fine

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
