While many bicycle builders have been offering different quality ranges to meet the expectations of a wider circle of customers, Irio Tommasini has never done anything alike.
The artisan frame manufacturer from Grosseto, Tuscany knows nothing but one category of frames - top-class. And what else would you expect from someone who worked together with the giants of frame building Faliero Masi and Giuseppe Pelà? But what do you do if people keep asking you to build a bike and are on a tight budget? You simply design a bicycle which does not compromise on performance or looks while still being more affordable than your top model...
Tommasini did so in creating the 'Racing'. A frameset which comes in standard roundish Columbus Cromor tubing. Cromor was actually pretty popular due to its greater stability in sprints and descends compared to Columbus SLX for example. All this by offering just a slight weight difference and being cheaper.
This particular Tommasini Racing dates back to the 1990s and fits perfectly in the line of legendary bikes built in the Italian factory in Grosseto.
Our Tommasini is fitted with well-performing Campagnolo Chorus 8-speed gruppo with Ergopower shifters on the bars, fine 3ttt cockpit, Campagnolo Omega clincher rims or the white Rolls saddle.
Checked in our workshop, this bike is ready to deliver performance and ride pleasure the kind of which you would expect from a serious 90s racing machine.
ConditionThe bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork is original with some normal signs of usage such as a few paint chips and scratches The decals are original too. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

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
