    Killer V 600 (new school/old school project)

    I bought myself this week a retro Cannondale bike. I was astounedd in what excellent condition the frame and fork are (only some minor paintdamage on the headtube - cables... - and on the drive-side seatstay - fallen).

    I want to use this frame and fork and rebuilt it with al new stuff (most of the original stuff already has been replaced ). And then use the bike as it should be used: on the trails, without compromises!!

    Deadline: somewhere in september (gonna use it in the winter), so no rush. More info and pics later!

    But already some teasers 8) :









    Who guesses the model and year (European model) 8) ? Come on, so easy!

    The vintage is 1995 ish. But the dull paint says 96. Got a top tube so it's not a Super V.

    The best bike they made in that vintage is an M800.

    This is the bike now:

















    And the finishing touch: a Cannondale-Volvo jersey of the same product season!

    That is beautiful. It inspires me to put a rigid fork on my KV3000. Great build!
