56cm Cannondale SR500 Black Lightning

I've posted this on my local CL, but if any BFers would be interested I'll do $old. It's seen a lot of use and has the scratches to prove it, but no dents. All original Suntour group. Nitto cockpit. Wheelset is not original, but are period correct 105 (gasp!) freewheel hubs laced to non-machined rims from a Benotto. I'd like to sell to local PNW buyer as boxes are a bit hard to find still.

Man if I lived nearby I'd take it. If you go over the frame with polishing compound and a wax job it would look 10x better and get a lot of scratches out.

As-is this is worth the frame alone! Too bad I'm not local.

To answer my own question.....Not that far! Just so happens my son and daughter in law live in Renton and were able to put this deal together for me awhile back. Bike finely made it to Wisconsin yesterday. I'm happy to add it to my stable. I don't mind the saddle but it will be coming off in favor of a SSM Rolls.

Congratulations. That's probably the only all black bike that I think looks great. And I'm a fan of vintage Cannondales. I'm building a 3.0 for my wife right now. Just painted it in pearl white.
