OK, I know it's not a Cannondale, but I've heard so much about the handbuilt beauty and soul of a steel lugged Trek that I had to build one up. This one's a little small for me (and already spoken for), but it is a gorgeous piece of bike jewelry.
Started with an '84 760 frame (yes, the purple one) that I bought from a C&V'er, then had it stripped and powder coated in red with a white fork. Guy did a nice job, too, you can still easily see the TREK logos that are in the stays and BB. It got a nice Specialized Flag logo crankset, Stronglight needle bearing headset, Ultegra FD & RD & brakeset with Tektro levers, Shimano 105 DT shifters, a new set of 126OLD alloy polished rims with a new 7 speed Shimano FW, a Vader saddle and CST tires, an Origin8 stem (great value, those) and a set of 26mm Nitto bars I got from another C&V'er some time ago. Decals were cut by a guy who sells them online at a very reasonable price. Love the red Odyssey Par Ends!
Still waiting on a few hardened steel bits to finish it off before we take a long ride together, but initial impressions are VERY positive, to say the least.
