Ok, so this is my first " find " - think it is a late 80's model, but still trying to find correct year and specs. Gonna be a work in progress over the next few months. No rush, although I am torn between all the options:

1. original
2. singlespeed
3. mix of old/new

Will give it a few days to settle ....

Anybody able to confirm model, year?

Lovely jubbly :) the best way to date a cannondale is to visit the vintage cannondale website where theres a page for deciphering your serial number.

Looks fairly original.....I'd keep it that way 8)

Have a browse here http://www.vintagecannondale.com/catalog.html may help you identify the year.

Steel fork and U brakes put it firmly in 88/89 territory. I'd say take your time and keep the old bugger original....sweet!!!

Got the bike from a friend - lives out on a small holding - so he has these odd machines lying around, not quite sure what that Yellow Monster is - some kind of grader?
