Here's my newly aquired Saeco Cannondale.
I've been searching for a CAD3 in my size for ages, and this one came up on eBay a couple of weeks ago complete with a flogged out Shimano RX100 groupset and wheels and some other ghetto parts.
Its also in desperate need of some new paint and decals, and you an clearly see where the prwevious owner has touched up a bunch of scratches with totally the wrong colour paint.
Still... I'm more than happy to give it some love and restor it back to as new spec and condition.
Here's the frame/fork after I pulled everything off it.
I'm a little confused about the paint scheme on this one. I havent seen the purple dropouts on any other Cannondale, except for some of the Saeco/Timex team bikes. So if anyone can shed some light on the purple dropouts, I'd be very appreciative.
I also picked up a partly NOS, partly mint, Shimano Dura-Ace 7700 9-Speed groupset for it last week for a good price.
And a quick shot of it semi-built with the groupset bolted on and the old RX100/CXP12 wheelset.
And finally a quick shot in very average weather from this morning after I picked up some Spinergy Rev-X's
I'm still waiting on a NOS Dura-Ace 7700 headset, Yellow Selle Italia saddle, Yellow/Red bar tape, and a cable kit.
I'm also trying to track down a decal kit so I can have it repainted and give it some fresh decals.
Stay tuned for more updates over the next week or 2!
