I inherited an old Cannondale M700. Was reading your post and looked for the imprint as described to see if I could determine the year/specific make. The only imprint I found read B1-0301. Quite different than the imprints you noted. This bike was purchased in New York (or maybe San Francisco) - perhaps the imprints differ on exports? Can anyone make sense of this imprint or know how I might otherwise determine the year of make?
Thanks.
