    Cannondale s/n Help

    While moving the fleet around in the new shop, I revisited the serial # of my flagship touring bike.
    Serial # B1 0302 and is located on the underside of the drive side chainstay.
    The critter is a 27" frame Cannondale Touring model with no model # to be found.
    It has what I believe to be the Anthracite paint color found on their high-end tourers of the late 80's
    to early 90's.
    Cantilever brakes and 135mm rear dropout spacing.
    The 1991 ST1000 came with a 7 speed Suntour freewheel, but may have been 135mm ??
    Odd part is that it has the old style fork crown rather than the unicrown fork introduced in the early 90's.
    I purchased her as a frame and fork, so I can't identify through componentry.
    It pretty much appears to be a 1992 T1000 with the exception of the fork.

    The Vintage Cannondale site does not list this format serial #.
    Could possibly been a special order custom ?

    for reference,I have a 1990 ST600 that has 130mm dropout spacing, but follows the standard Cannlndale serial # format.

    Any info floating around out there??

    I have seen several references to this Cannondale number on the web, but all have additional numbers on the frame somewhere.
    So, I took Mr.T off the wall and hunted more digits.............but found none.
    Not on chainstays (top or bottom of,) or under bottom bracket, nor on back of seat tube...all other locations
    on which I have found Cannondale serial ##'s in the past.
    The bike has the original paint, so I do not think that other ###'s have been rendered invisible by paint buildup.
    It has the head tube badge used from 90-96
    This is a weird one...........

    I have a '95 R300/500, the serial number is similiar to yours, but is GB B1 0301. ? The GB is Feb, 1995 but I don't have a clue what the B1 0301 is.
    If you find yourself going downhill, stop pedaling.

    Ronno6, I didn't find any additional info either. My guess is that because 27" was a special order size it has a unique s/n?

    That's kinda of what I've been thinking about mine. The 27" frame was listed in geometry charts, but not an available size on complete bike charts for quite a few years from what I have seen in the catalogs.
    But I have net seen the anthracite color available on the frameset alone. Dunno.
