Cannondale ID and Value

CANNONDALE ROAD BIKE

Any idea on the year/model/size? Is it a male frame?

Is it any good? Worth looking in to?

Thanks!

Looks like the handle bars have been changed. Does anybody know how to take pics? Those pics suck!

Yes, if the frame and components are in good shape, that's a good bike. In those days, (late '80s), Cannondale used the same frame for all of the models from the least to the most expensive. (And they never had anything you could call an entry-level bike, so any Cannondale is at least mid-level or better in quality.)

That color was offered only in 1987, I believe. The bike would fit someone around 5' 10'' to 6 ft in height.

Dirty bikes can often be had for much less than the asking price. I'd offer $80 (assuming that the rims are straight, etc.) and see what happens.

88 decal set, likely a very early '88 SR frame due to the color. Not the original fork, may not even be a Cannondale/Tange fork, so check for impact damage. Cannondale also sold these color frames as replacement units, so may have been built up from one back then.
