Hi all.

UPDATED 14/06/13: NEW PICS BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE!

Just picked this up from a local swap shop.

Any guesses on age? I reckon it's about '96, but was never a massive Cannondale fan.

I also bagged a wee trek 820, a bit younger, but ideal for my mates boy.

I collect tomorrow, so will post up more pics once it's all back home.

At a guess I'd say about 1995 for the Dale 8)

Looking forward to the clean up operation.

More like a 1992 or '93 M500, by '95 they had dropped the loooong drop idea. (See below.) Also the decals placement look similar and in 93 the bike was offered in black.
