Great to see you reunited with it. I used to work in a shop and one day a Cannondale Raven was parked in the workshop doorway, it stopped me dead in my tracks, i knew it was my old Raven. I wanted it back. Didn't have the balls to enquire, but it must be great to get an old friend back :)

Slim, sorry false alert. stipped forks down today the elastomers are like new! :D The grease had congealed into a glue, that explains the lack of travel. Thanks anyway.

Planned for resto! Stripped down yesterday (all bar seatpost which i have been unable to budge so far).
BITD it was metallic purple, colour looked incredibly like purple wickeds er... purple wicked :D Would be nice to keep that colour, have looked on Argos website and colour 9 "purple metallic" looks a good match. So if i can get my grubby mitts on some decals i think they will get the job, argos seem to be highly rated on here.
Then its ebay here i come! (funds permitting). Most of the parts i stripped ended up in the bin, even the LOVELY bars & bar ends :) Was tempted to put them on ebay :D
