Well, I picked up another one.....
This one's a '97 F-300, which makes it the newest old bike I've bought, and the first one with any suspension.
It was more than $10, though, but I liked the look of it enough, that I drove an hour to get it

I've also decided that I LOVE Cannondale's paint - This is the 2nd old C-dale I've found with the paint in excellent shape - They must have used good stuff .........

For 1997, this bike seems almost a throwback for Cannondale, as their MTB's were mostly very technical, full suspension, V-braked jobs, at that time.

It's pretty much original, even to the Coda seat, except the front wheel doesn't match - It's a Sun AT18, and the rear's a Weinmann.
The Rock Shox fork seems in good shape, and everything works, although a bit out of adjustment.
No high end stuff here, just Shimano Altus derailleurs and crankset, Dia Compe canti's (with original grey matter pads), SRAM grippies (which I'll probably change, as I hate grip shifters), and IRC tires.

And I even got the original Cannondale owners manual - I'm the 2nd owner
