i just stumbled on this thread searching info on my new '85 cannondale.
isn't in as good a condition as yours though.
looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
we can compare notes.
Mine isn't getting too much work. Most bits will just be stripped down, regreased and polished but there will be a few new parts fitted. It's not in the same league of retro as yours although it does have parts that are older than the frame. I'd be interested to see some close ups of your rollercam mounting plate as I recently decided against buying a 85/86 as I didn't want the bmx caliper on the rear.
sounds like we are going the same road. this a low low budget build. use as much as it came with. tidy it up and see what it looks like. i picked up the wheels for mine today. just finished cleaning them up. will be updating my thread soon. i think mine is an '84.
ya i don't know what's the story on my rear brake. checked catalogue spec's and it should be a bmx-ish dia compe ??--1000 i think it is. but mine is a rollercam. was hoping some could shed some light on it, but no help so far.
yours is definetly in the same retro league. very cool. even more with 24x24.
here's my rear brake. will be adding a few shots of it to my thread. check out that mounting plate.
stock cannondale?????? aftermarket????
