    How about these?

    Tinker's Scalpel:


    Pozzato's Chrome painted System 6:



    I could go on with all the custom pro paints Gibo Simoni, Cipollini, Gracia, Sydor and all had at some point...

    It's a Six13 Scalpel like the Siemens-Cannondale and now the Vredestein-Cannondale team have, but Tinker gets his own paintjob (he also has a carbon Ruch with that paintjob), making it even more rare.

    Here's Another BMX For You

    They're not very rare, thousands of 24", 20", and mini frames made. They only made them for 2(?) years so production was low compared to some models.

    Cannondale did so many 1-off frames for individuals in the 80's and into the 90's that it would be hard to pick one.

    Edit: Sorry for the shoddy photography

    this is my new cannondale cooper tools.

    i know nothing of this model and research is proving useless other then the fact cooper tools is a large tool manufacturer and all other names listed on the bike are brand within the cooper tools name.

    please note only the frame and fork are original

    are we talking production bikes or proto-types

    now if were talking production bikes, I have a rare Mario Cipollini "Black Lightning" Edition Bike

    Mario Cipollini's Black Lightning bike from 1999 was the first Cannondale to use what would become the BB30 bottom bracket with the Hollowgram crank.

    Did you get those pics off eBay, or are you selling that one on eBay? Can't be a coincidence methinks, just saw it there.

    I saw it on Ebay too, it's the first time I've seen one so I thought it was pretty rare.

    I have a 1991 SE 1000 that is really similar to that. They were only made in 1991. Mine is all decked out with old school parts from the 90's as well.
