I have been offered a Cannondale Delta V 900 for an early 80's Bianchi entry level road bike. Thoughts on the Cannondale? I do not like the color of the Cannondale being offered. It's an early 90's model I believe. Both bikes are in average condition. I have not seen the Cannondale in person. Pics below.

Cannondale needs rear derailleur, freewheel, chain, seat. Probably needs everything lubed and cables checked. Front headshock may need serviced also. Just a quick look at the pic I don't think it's in average condition, probably less than average.
Edit: Just noticed rear wheel is on backwards so probably has a freewheel on it. How the owner did that without noticing is strange.
Headshock is shot. See how it's compressed and the front end is "low riding"?
Crap for crap, IMO. It depends on what you're doing widdit. Either bike would make a good stripped down commuter.

The Cannondale is shot. I passed.
Uh the Bianchi is far from crap, and completely rideable. Rides, and shifts fine. And yes, who ever will buy the Bianchi certainly would be using it as a commuter.
