One of my dream bikes from BITD. There wasn't even a Cannondale dealer nearby so I had to make do with the catalogue. I'm not sure that I ever saw one in the metal before mine arrived a year or so ago now. It's a bit rough around the edges but hopefully it will look something like this when I'm done putting it all back together

The frame polished up quite nicely. As many of us know, the old 'dales would shed their paint if you looked at them too hard, but the paint that remains still polishes up a treat :)

Very nice mate.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with. Are you going for a catalogue build?

Catalogue spec it is then sir :D

Now I just need spare time and somewhere to hang it - I can cram plenty of unbuilt bikes into the shed but finding room to hang another fully built one is a completely different story :roll:
