    Vintage Cannondale pics please?

    Now that I have the space and the cash to invest in an extra bicycle I need to make a choice. If I had to pick one now I would go for one of the bikes I liked when I was just starting to ride. late 80's early 90's.
    Back then I liked Cannondale among others.
    I would like to see some high end Dales from that time. Who's got some pics?

    You know...there's a bit of everything here...but I can't say I've seen too many dialed in top of the line early 90's C'Dales.

    Some 26/24" wheel'ed stuff is out there.

    Have you done a Vintage forum specific search for 'cannondale'? I'm sure pics will come up.

    This is probably earlier than you're looking for, but it's still pretty cool (for a Cannondale ).

    this was my first "real" mountain bike. except mine had all the black anodized parts, full suntour XC gruppo. I had it on lay-away at the LBS for about 4 months till my dad helped pay it off early. I think it was about $740, which was a boatload of money, especially for a high school student then. I still remember riding it out the store when I got to take it home.

    that photo brings back lot of good memories. i bent the derailleur hanger a few years later and replaced it with a 3.0 model in 1988.
    will you rep me?

    Maybe this is a bit too old.....here's my mid 80's bike, all the original paint and parts are still there, but over the years I replaced the seat, tires, grips, and added the seat spring, fenders, and rack the week I bought it back in 85ish.

    I needed a bike that I could ride to the store, etc. Something that wouldn't matter if it got ripped off. So I got a Cannondale.

    Fortunately, most people don't realize the street value of those brakes...

    Fenders and a rollercam - that's just cool. Any close-ups of the rear brake/fender relationship?

    Thanks, cegrover. The brake area was the weak link in the in the rear fender. I had to cut the fender in two, and I remember the mud build up on the brake (ah, the good old days). The pics show some crude aluminum strap bending, pop-riveting, and small fasteners holding the rear portion of the fender to the black rack. It will all come off without a trace. It's strong, but ugly, has held up for over 23 years.

    if your still looking, I was just given a 1989 Cannondale 3.0 series 22 in mountain frame. Right now I'm in the process of stripping the paint, and then repainting it.
