Possible Cannondale T Series

Help convince me this isn't a T Series... waiting on a right/correct side photo from seller before risking my health and leaving the castle.

Has 3 bottle braze ons, front rack mounts, the crimped beefy chainstays... and aging flat tires.

...that's what they look like, with a longer wheelbase and the extended chainstays. Even with that going for you, they are pretty stiff, and mine will only fit a 32mm wide tyre on the back with some difficulty. and only certain brands at that width. That's enough for me to be comfortable on it.

Count: 2 yays

I cannot tell if it's the stupid angle the photo was taken from or if the frame looks squished indicating it's probably very small. No word back from seller on frame size yet.

What rear rack is that?

Never count on sellers to get size right......

It does look like a 19" doesn't it?

What is FMV for this 22.5"?
It's a shame the rack is missing and I see rust from the previous hardware...

The better deal is the 23” ST that was just posted for $159.

Run, do not walk.

Help... which direction do I run? I don't see it in the Marketplace or Craiglist/eBay thread.
