Here it is, my SM800 Cannondale. It arrived here with the time machine directly from 1987, the year that Mathias Rust landed at the Red Square, the Iron Lady got reelected, the Herald of Free Enterprise ferry sunk in the North Sea, Black Monday ....and also the year of 1st spots in the hitparade for songs like Madonna's 'Who's that gril' and George Michael's 'Faith' and movies like Fatal Attraction and Lethal Weapon.
It looks really good. I think someone bought it, put it in a box and stored it warm and comfy for almost 2 decades. I got the bike through a house painter. He got the bike as payment for work done.
Suntour Rollercams =>
Huge levers. Very good
Also very good: Much use of metal, minimal use of plastics.
I like the QR, with the little ring =>
Old C'dale 'station' logo =>
All pics here!
Everytime I am taking a closer look at it I am amazed by its condition, quality touches and uniqueness ('87 MTBs are not seen at every corner in Europe). Hope you enjoyed too!
