Identify this Cannondale frame

Hi guys, I recently bought a 2006 Bianchi Brava from a lady and she told me she has this frame laying around. Could you please help me identify it because she knows nothing about bikes (she sold me the Bianchi for 200$).

Thanks in advance!

That was quick! I don't have serial number yet, but according to the catalogs it probably is what you said.

you should be ashamed of your self for taking advantage of her. go give her another $100 atleast.

I agree with Tugrul

Well I gave her an extra 30$ for gas as she lives 200km from me she was passing by.

Maybe.

That's a late '86 SR frame (early decals but plastic top tube cable guides) or '87 frame/fork (they used the same early decals on the replacement F/F sets in 87). There was no 86 Black Lightning in the lineup and the 87 BL's used the later decals. Could be an 87-88 BL group installed on a replacement frame or an LBS custom build. Are those Suntour Edge components? 6 or 7 speed?
