When looking at the catalogs, pay attention to the location of the "Cannondale" decal. Cannondale moved that decal back and forth from the top tube to the down tube. Also watch the rear dropout. The style of that changed over the years.

As far as value, the value is really the same, whether it is a 1984, 1985, or a 1986. Its all about condition (which looks pretty good on both bikes).
