Is this one really a Cannondale? What model would this be. I'm guessing that's a good price considering the DA components.

Looks like a steel frame to me, which would mean it's not a Cannondale.

The crankset is Dura Ace, but shifters are lower end RSX -- roughly equivalent to today's Sora. I can't tell what the other parts are.

The mismatched fork gives me pause. If it's not original, why was it replaced? Wreck?

Is it worth $150? Possibly. Depends on what it actually is.

Looks like the RD is a low end Shimano 200GS. None of the components are from the same era, and the fork doesn't match the frame, which leads me to think it's a parts bin special. Oddly enough, the seller doesn't even know how to measure the frame, so they're probably not the one who built it. The frame looks like polished aluminum to me. Long chain stays point to it being a touring model. If it's a Cannondale, it's weird that it doesn't have the usual dimpled chain stays (to avoid pedal strike). It also doesn't have the really fat down tube I associate with 'dales.

I don't know what it is, and I'd stay away from it.

Yep, I didn't look like most Cannondales I've seen before.

Doesn't look like a Cannondale to me the rear chainstays and dropouts are wrong and the welds/brazing look way to rough. If I had to guess I would say it looks more like an early 90's Mongoose IBOC or Motobecane aluminium frame that has been rebuilt with semi junk parts. The only nicer part is the DA crank and it's a slightly beat up older model that doesn't really go with the bike. As presented I wouldn't even go $150 more like $100 as beater or parts bike.
