Wich would be better (in looks, for maye next years Eroica)?
First: Fulcrum 5.5 without any stickers.
Vittoria Corsa 25 mm tires



Then, with Ambrosia Ecellence wheels...
Jack Brown Mile Muncher tires. 25 mm. Came with the wheels, not sure if I like them.



I know I have to "fix" the brakes, but I should have at least a yer to do that. I am sure something nice will come along.
I'll fix the rear derailler then, as well, as the front chainrings. Not sure I want to push 52 up the hills in Limburg.
But that's for later.

What looks best?

I just sold this little guy about a month ago. Its a '61 Legnano Gran Premio. I got it right after last year's Eroica, and tried several things to fix the fit. It's only a 54 cm, and I tried longer stem and seat post, but never got comfortable on it. I still have my '64 Legnano Roma, which fits fine after over 50 years.

My last ride before shipping it to a new home.

I'm keeping the '64 Roma.

That frame is mid to later '80s, probably made by Guerciotti builders. If those Campy parts are OE, the date codes should get you to within a year of the frame. My guess is '85-'88. Not sure if Ten Speed Drive Imports (TSDI) branded any frames with the "Tommaso" badge before '85. They imported Guerciotti, Rossin, and ALAN (under Guerciotti and Tommaso badges). I have an '86 Tommaso lugged alloy frame (ALAN) so I know they were using the "Tommaso" branding as of that time.

Looks like my latest Italians have never been shared here.

First is this beautiful Paletti:




Then there's my second Billato built Giordana XL Super built up to be under 18 lbs as in this picture: A wonderfully riding 90's steel machine.

Finally got around to taking some pictures of my D’arienzo/basso.

This is my daily rider and it rides like a dream with the tubulars.

Managed to finally get hold of Cinelli Volare saddle for my Columbus Max Nikor, to match the Cinelli bar and stem. Ambrosio hubs, 28c Veloflex tyres, Campagnolo brakes and 10 speed Campagnolo drivetrain. All Italian apart from the French Look pedals. Absolutely love this bike, such a great ride, and it looks nice in a bit of sunshine, which we have today but it hasn't been seen much recently here in the UK.
