Looks great, like an oversized BMX 👍
Thanks Tsundere!
I bought it tatty, but reasonably cheap (350 USD).
Came with most of the original parts.
Just needed to be cleaned up, add a few catalog correct parts and new decals from vintage cannondale.
Paint is even original, just had to touch up a few chip spots with paint I mixed myself.

Finally adjusted and tuned!
Took it out for first ride.
Rides like a 24" wheel BMX cruiser.

Nice work on that: digging it in yellow.
Your red one is really cute. Do you plan on putting a front mech on that?

It has the original yellow paint. I just needed to touch up a few chips and put on new decals from vintage cannondale.
I bought it tatty and cheap as a mostly complete bike. Just needed a few parts to make it catalog spec.
