Check your date codes on components for exact year. Cannondale made the cantilever chainstay/dropout design in the early 90s. I have a 91 SM500 with the same color and dropout design, but the Cannondale decal is on the downtube, not the top tube. 1990 bikes had the decal on the top tube.
I would look to pay $75 or less for a bike like the one in this thread. It needs to be assembled, needs some parts, and will need some maintenance. Ready to ride it is more like a $150 bike, but this one is not ready to ride. The frame is pretty scraped up, otherwise, my estimate would be a little higher.
Check the vintage Trek site for component codes, check the vintage Cannondale site for 1990 catalog.

+1, he's right on at $75 if the bits came with it. I'd give $10 for that white stem.

I would have guessed a 91 SR400, but there is no decal on the back of the top tube and the Shimano components are wrong for that model. The 3.0 tubing, cantilever rear dropouts and no model decal indicate to me it's a 89-90. The only 89 model that comes close is the SR2000. So it looks like a 90, maybe a SR800, but someone changed the derailers. $75 sounds about right.

I'm very close to trading for a similar one, 56cm, in, gag, Carolina blue.
I'm thinking of getting a root canal or a colonoscopy instead.
But I have a polished aluminum fork that will fit and I've been looking for an old aluminum frame.
