Very very nice.

Not enough Cannondale's round here and that one hits the spot.

I don't think there are many '87 frames that would look so convincingly "modern" (modern in retro terms, that's not an insult ;-) )

The geometry looks just right, and though I must admit that yellow would be one of my last colour choices it looks pretty good here :-)

Availability mate, looking for a nice long cage M-730 to match the front- anyone??

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks again for all the advice.

Its funny that there are so few Cannondales on here considering how many were built.

Just found some nice NOS Onza CWAs in blue ano as a final touch- suppose these projects are never finished :lol:
