Tommasini Diamante "Colorado" C-record equipt. This bike is owned by my wife. She does not want it because she does not like riding position on road bicycle. Its grimey, Needs new tires. Used little and stored inside for 20 years . It has:
C-record 8 gear rear cassette, 2 gears front
Campy derailleurs perfect
Campy crank set
C internazionali hub sets
Center pull Campy brakes, hand brake calipers Cinelli 10-11 cm stem
Campy handle bars 41 cm
Campy Victory Strada wheels (take 28" tires)
Regal Giradi leather saddle with some abrasion
Frame 52 cm top and seat tube, in almost perfect Colorado Rockies paint scheme and perfect decals. Columbus MS steel with chrome "T" lugs. Chromed front fork and rear of frame.

Surface rust on "T" lugs and Chrome mild pitting from humidity. Decals are perfect. Paint has no scratches or chips. For me it is still a sweet ride, but maybe I should retire it vs clean, polish, and tune-up. What would you do?

Clean, Shine, Tune, Adjust, Tape, and THEN Photos...

What would I have done? I would have cleaned, shined, tuned, de-crapped, taped, and adjusted seat post, saddle angle, and bars all BEFORE photos just out of pride and respect for this beast. Take some nice photos and repost. After that, if you cant ride it and your wife refuses to develop any attachment, I would sell it to someone that would keep the flame alive. You could use the funds to purchase another ride for your wife and be happy you extended the life-use of this period Tommasini. This is all assuming this is far too small for you to ride.
