Got my 93 Cannondale out for the red bike pictures but had not ridden it in a long time. Saddle was way low but I put 10 miles on it. Bought this six years ago. This was a replacement frame for the sellers father. Had no wheels but set up as a Dura Ace down tube 7-8 speed. I had to clime up into a attic to get and it looked pretty much like new.

Cannondales are gorgeous in my opinion, and I don't need more bikes.. but I want more Cannondales!



Beauty.
The stem looks like it is out past the minimum insertion line? Might want to check that.

Looks fine to me. Those markings are from previous positions its been in and ridden (mild flexing gradually wears off the anodizing). I've had this with a number of (used) stems I've bought. Some black market will tidy things up nicely.

Or he has way better eyes than us. But checking isn't a bad idea.

Or course, but I wasn't looking at the scratches, but how relatively high out of the frame that stem looks. Unless it something like a Nitto Tallux or Technomic....

Maybe I am too used to the "slam that stem" aesthetic.
