1992 Cannondale 2.8 in 52 cm, value of bare frame and fork?

I acquired a 1992 Cannondale 2.8 R1000, 52 cm. I'm planning to use the components for a project and thus am hoping to sell the frame, which is too small for me and my wife now wants a recumbent rather than a DF road bike.

How much do you think I should ask for the bare frame and fork?

I don't see used Cannondales for sale or discussed here, not as much as I'd expect, considering how many must have been sold new. Is there a forum where enthusiasts of vintage Cannondales hang out?

I'm not aware of any Cannondale dedicated forums. However, if the frame is in good mechaincal and cosmetic condition, I supect it would sell for $100-$150 in your neck of the woods.

Here as much as anyplace else.

Typical Cannondale frame prices for that era: $70-$125 depending on size, color and quality of finish. 20 year old Cannondale paint is often in bad shape and in need of refinishing. I buy, refinish and resto-mod six to ten of these each year, and find that extra-small (e.g. yours) or extra-large (60cm+) generally go for the low end of the scale. I usually keep one or two around for shorter women looking for a really nice built-to-order road bike in DC.

You may find that Portland is different and you can get a little more, the city being so bike-friendly and all.

$100 max. Small size is a plus, otherwise, I would guess lower. Realize unless the buyer has an ample parts bin, by the time that bike is rebuilt, he will be upside on value.

I tend to keep frames like this one (if the paint is good) and rebuild it later when I find a donor bike (one with frame issues but good parts).

Thanks. Sounds like it is a sufficiently common item and the value-to-shipping cost ratio is low enough, that I'd be better off putting it on CL, with good hosted images and so forth? Here in Portland, someone will probably turn it into a fixie with stubby handlebars . . .

Helps to be in a red hot market, might bring $150 there (almost anywhere else, $100).

I finally got some pictures up. This is as received, bike doesn't need any cleaning up, it is pretty nearly spotless. Paint is practically perfect, I will give it a wax though.

Turns out it is 54 cm, not 52.

Overall shot in my messy garage.


Drivetrain w/ temporary pedals.


Rear brake - anyone know where to get these Mavic-branded pads/carriers?


Controls - I like the Modolo levers.



The headset is a Mavic, stem Tioga, bars Scott. Seatpost American Classic, seat Avocet Titanium. Rims are Campagnolo tubulars, hubs Hi-E. Everything else is the original Mavic. I guess this was the only year of R1000/2.8 that was Mavic'd.

So I'm now wondering at its value if left intact? Any thoughts?

I've ridden it a couple of slow miles, not going to push it until I change the tires although they hold air fine and do seem securely glued.
