Vintagecannondale.com

You can decipher the serial number with that website and find the catalog that matches the year.

can you post bigger better pics? if the seat really needs to be that high, it may be too small.

T series ? It's an "SRnnn" .... SR400, SR500 ...

ST was the touring bikes lineup.

All the frame were the same, but with different paint & components for the different models.

And the stem looks dangerously high ... probably well past the safety mark.
