Cannondale never made a steel bike. They were one of the pioneers of oversized aluminum tubes. 1983 was their first year of production. You can find much more information at vintagecannondale.com

I have a low serial number 1983 Cannondale. I love it.

Mine's a 1986 SR600. I love to do a hilly ride on it, so stiff!

I still have my 98 CAD3 Cannondale. The last and final year Cannondale produced steel frames.

Very good climber!

The fork may be steel. Cannondale never made steel frames though. Put a magnet to it, Beans. I don't think it is going to stick. I may be wrong but I've never seen a steel frame Cannondale.

It was in humor ( and ) since the OP also posted the bike was steel, and the other guys corrected him.

Oh, and my fork is carbon (Kestrel EMS)

Is that a dent in the chainstay or is the frame designed to allow space for the pedal ?

Yes, designed for pedal clearance. BTW I bought it as a frame set and built it up with Sun Tour Superbe Pro, the first year of index shifting. I still shifts fast and accurate, like new....quality!!
