BICYCLES OF ITALY

1984 TOMMASINI PRESTIGE - INTRODUCTION

Italian road bicycles have long been held in high regard, by vintage road bicyclists, in days gone by, as well as now.  Names like Bianchi, Cinelli, Olmo and Masi, all fall into the best of the best category, and so too does Tommasini.

Like so many bicycle builders, Iro Tommasini started his career, in road bicycling, as a racer.  In 1948, still racing at the amateur level, Iro entered into the world of bicycle building.  For nine years, he learned from some of the best frame builders in Italy, developing his skills, as a frame builder, while developing his philosophy towards the work that he did.  1957 saw Tommasini open his own shop, in Milan, and the history of the famed Tommasini bicycle began.

The bicycle's quality soon became well known.  Each Tommasini bicycle's quality was a direct result of quality material choice, coupled with uncompromised attention to construction.  Simply put, the Tommasini bicycle was considered to hold its own with the best of the best mentioned earlier.

Today, Tommasini bicycles are highly sought after and for good reason!  They are well made bicycles, that offer the kind of ride, vintage road bicycle enthusiasts have come to expect, from the better bikes to come out of Italy.
