Subject: [CR]Dating a Tommasini Prestige

Hello List, I recently purchased a late 70's/early 80's Tommasini Prestige road bike. The components are a mix of Nuovo/Super Record. The NR rear derailleur is stamped '84. Any other Tommasini owners out there have any pointers as to how I can put a date on this frame? The tubing decal (Columbus) has flaked off, but the tubes are ribbed (length wise). The chromed fork (with "T" cut out) has Columbus decals and "Air" stamped on it as well. Any help would be appreciated.
