'88 Tommasini Air CX Time Trial

This isn't going to get built up for a while, but I thought I'd go ahead and post some pics because it's such a mash up of awesomeness and WTFitude. It's got:
Funny bike geometry
Hellenic stays
Columbus MS (Multi Shape) tubing- each tube is a different shape, i.e. one chainstay ovalized, the other triangular, teardrop shaped downtube
That wacky stars paint job
The nicest unicrown fork I've seen
And, as always with Tommasinis, the bottom headlug incorporates the Tommasini "T"

People who friended this bike jellyfish, Insomnia, dustin, Otto Rax, Rusty Piton, xgreenisemox, newforker, per.k


This frame is my friend.

Great looking frame.

Are you sure the frame is from 88? I believe the MS tubing came later. I had a road frame Tommasini 1990 of MS tubing ¨velocista¨. I had also 1988 a Tommasini TT bike with oria tubing, very light but gave lot of flex at the bottom bracket after very short time of riding. Same design as yours frame but with bent seat post tube.
What kind of components will you use?

Actually, I'm not sure it's

Actually, I'm not sure it's an '88. That's what the seller told me, but I'll see if I can find out for sure.
As for components, the frame came with Shimano cranks and an ITM stem, but I think I'll go with a period Campy group.
