Identifying Cannondale?

Hey everyone. I've been looking to upgrade to my first real road bike. My budget is small and will be only using it to commute, so I've been looking around CL for used and even older bikes and came across this Cannondale, at least that's what it says. I believe it is older but I can't quite identify from looking through the older catalogues from the mid-late 80's. I'm an amateur by all means so forgive my ignorance, but is this thing authentic?

here is a link to the craigslist page for a few more pictures although I don't know how much more a help they will be.

Looks like an '86ish model year. I think there a classic cannondale site where you can look up the serial number.

Looks like an '86 SR500 in Rose. https://www.vintagecannondale.com/year/1986/1986.pdf

Bianchis '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, '93 Reparto Corse SBX

Others but still loved; '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape SLX Bertoni "Speckled Trout"

Thanks for the reply. I'll try and get a hold of the seller and see if they'll give me the serial number.

Yep, an '86 SR. Nice groupset, worth the price if it fits you.

Yeah, if you're in the neighborhood of 5'6" and like a very stiff, racy bike, that'd be a good'un. Fast bike.
