I recently acquired an old Cannondale frame from John at the March RB Meet, and as my Dad seemed to take an interest in it as I walked it thru the door, I gave it to him..

I've created a monster.. He said he wants to restore it!

It's going red, I'm trying to make sure he sticks to a Cannondale colour.. With silver decals [there's a chap on US Ebay]..

Not sure of the forks tho, I have a spare set of Pepperonis but I think the should be Spinner Cro-Mo jobs..

The chainstays are the old "dented" ones, not the later [91] squarish section ones.. Any ideas on forks?

yeah, I would pop the pepperamis on there too. The spinners look a bit weedy on a dale.

Oversized head tube?
I've got some Headshox you could have for free - I expect the postage would be a bit pricey though :roll:

Am I correct in thinking that the M-series frames had regular sized head tubes and the F-series frames had oversized headtubes to fit the Headshox?

If it's a standard M frame then Headshox won't fit but if it's an F (I can't tell from the pic) the forks are yours if you want 'em.

They've been in my garage undisturbed for 10 years so can't guarantee they're any good but i'll dig them out this weekend and have a look.

They're bright yellow and were on my mate's Super-V (but not for long), I have no idea how I ended up with them or where the red ones off my Super-V went!

I'm happy to go drinking, racing or to the rugby with my dad but i wouldn't want him getting into retro - I (and my mates) had to suffer him at all the races back in the day!
