Ah, this thread brings back some memories. Had the same bike, same size and same Onza sticker too :lol:
I sold mine 15 year ago and now regret doing it. I wonder where my bike will be right now…
Nice project you have there. I agree with you on the parts. Suntour XC Comp did not work for me and switched to Shimano as soon as I had the chance.

You wont believe it - but I was the original owner of that bike ! I miss it and in some free time did a quick google images search! The Onza & Oakley stickers, and scuff on the left chainstay were the giveaways.
I sold the bike when I was studying veterinary medicine at Bristol University - back in around 1994/5.
The bike was originally purchased from Evan's cycles in Woking, Surrey - around 1990.
I'm now based in Hong Kong. Such a small world.....
Please do not sell it without emailing me !!! I will try to find some old photos.

Best, Marc

Hi Marc!

Thank's for that very interesting information. It's funny to hear what ways has the frame behind. :wink:

But I've to disappoint you, I'll never sell that cannondale. As I told that before I've owned exactly the same bike 1991. I can reassure you, however, I love that bike and it's my favourite in my bike-collection.

Now it's looking like this:

I'm liking that (risers and bar-ends too :oops:). There's just something so purposeful, yet beautifully minimal, about early Cannondale(s) - I'm gonna get me one someday :wink:.

Judging by the post code in picture #3 it never went far after you sold then... all the way Wrington !
whats that about 10 miles south of the city down the A370
(Or 15 miles if you include a quick stop off / detour around Ashton Court) :lol:

Good job (except the riser bar :lol: )
I love these Cannondale. This year, you could choose 2 paint job : black/blue pearl (like mine) and the jet fighter grey (like the SE1000) This grey is very elegant !

Some picture of the crank side ?
:D
