Here is my trusty august 96' built 1997 cannondale M1000 caad3,
I have owned from new and having searched up on these there isn't much info apart from bikepedia so I thought I would post the old girl to share,

The old dale is the original polished finish although when I first purchased she matching had P-bone fork but sadly after 18 months the buggers steer tube snapped and I replaced with an earlier pepperoni that I never got around to having polished and seeing as I still ride it everyday could do without the autosol treatment everyday!

Original coda cranks which despite the feedback from other riders I have never had an issue with them..

Original coda stem and bars even original grips!
Think I'm going to have to tidy her up a bit and hopefully get my hands on the elusive P-bone!
Ideally coda 900 pedals and ST rear mech and shifters as I went for functionality rather than quality and also hated the original grip shifters!
One of the beauties with the old polished frame is its pretty easy to keep tidy and the original decals aren't to shabby still. If anybody else has one of same time it would be great to see one?

Level the bar ends, lose the saddle pack, could be nice.

Shouldnt it have P-bone foprks? Looks the Peps have been added in.

Agree about the bar ends the do look a bit odd to be honest the saddle pack is on as I ride the thing everyday so although not pretty its functional for what I need, as for the forks yeah your right it says at start of post why I have pepperonis on but I am looking for some p bones to polish up")
