My M500, which I posted earlier as I built to be a weight-loss bike. Now that I'm well within the 'factory' weight limits for nearly all my other bikes, this guy has been re-assigned as my cruddy weather mount.
Sure, it looks like it might have been passed over for The 40 Year Old Virgin, but it works, and I don't freak out about it getting wet and grimy.
I may pare it down a bit in the future, replace that trekking bar with a straight one, and remove the derailleurs... make it a single speed. I have the parts on Ramp Rat, and probably need to reduce the fleet a little anyway. I bet this would be a fairly decent single.

Finally found a good one ...


Found this 56cm, 1987 Black Lightning on Milwaukee’s Craig’s List ... Since I’m down here in Dallas, my brother up in Chicago went and got for me. Drove up to do the Chicago BTD and now the BL has got a new home in Dallas. Except for the nonstock wheels and rings worn to knife blades, this old fella is is really good shape. Will make a good Winter project.
Regards,
JD, Dallas

I just picked this up the other day and threw some parts at it to make it rideable - it was an upright bar conversion with a nice fat gel seat. 1988 ST1000. It was missing the Nitto cockpit, Brooks saddle, and front low rider racks, but thankfully everything else was accounted for. It is a very smooth, stable ride that may just become my "tour for real" bike. I'll ride it this summer and if it passes the test, it'll get a complete overhaul this winter.

24/26 1984 sm

Picked this up the other day. Love a good cannondale and was sold before I showed up seeing the bullhorn bars and suntour thumbies.
BB serial stars with BB which puts it in 1984.

Found this beauty today. I've been watching for an early ST. This one has a ST400 sticker on the chainstay, but it is definitely a 1985 ST500. It has the Sugino AT triple crank, the Modolo sidepulls, the Cyclone MKII front derailleur, etc. It has been modified a bit with the different cockpit and a Deore rear derailleur and 105 SIS shifters. CC are the first in the serial indicating the 1985 build date.

@casanewt, congrats, that's a keeper. 👍 Same as mine, other than a few parts, and mine's a size or 2 bigger. I suspect several of these early ones sold as framesets, so didn't all get the same parts. But yep, I have a Sugino AT triple, with a sweet Suntour BB. 😎

I'm sure it doesn't not compromise the integrity of the joint but I like to keep is as unmolested as possible in case I sell it. Or I may not put fenders on, it's AZ and we get about 1" of rain/year.


Wow I'm an idiot, completely misread the original question as 'how did you mount your rack'. Thanks for the correction, ROS. I know it's a bit late (don't visit the forum much these days), but my rear fender is attached near the bottom bracket with a p-clamp on the chainstay bridge just like you said.
