That looks f*****g mint! :D
Love Cannondales and love what you have done with that one.
It's particularly impressive considering the starting point.
Truly rags to riches - well done.

your elbows must nearly be as knackered as mine atm (world's stupidist bike crash i had 3 weeks ago,a hedge jumped out at my bars and chucked me off at about 5 mph lol). what with all that elbow grease to get the frame polished like that.

fantastic job sir :-)

That's an incredible amount of work that has paid dividends. Looks mint. I'd love a go at this sort of salvage/repair. Must keep my eyes open for a 'skipper'.

That really is amazing you have saved that pile of corrosion and made into a great bike.
You bought it off me.
I honestly didn't know what to do with it,and it wasn't really my type of bike, being more into road bikes.
Great job, interested to see how it progresses.
