I have an old '84 or '85 Cannondale Race frame. As I recall, it was one of the first racing frames that they had put out, and I think I got it because I had some connections with one of the top dealers here in L.A. at the time. (Prior to that they were mostly putting out the touring frames). I don't think it even had a model number at the time, it was just called "the racing frame." In fact, they didn't even file down the welds at first. They just left them all beefed up and painted over them. I had it built up with Suntour Superbe and an SR triple crank. It was pretty fast, and was my double-century bike.

Unfortunately, I haven't ridden it in about fifteen years. I gained some weight as I got older, and busted a few spokes. I promised myself I wouldn't ride it until I broke 200 lbs. again. Fortunately, I plan to do that this year, so I'll get back on it. It's still in great shape.

I'll try to post some pics later in the week.
