Old Cannondale adventure 800 hybrid as todays gravel


i found an nice looking C'dale Adventure 800 with rigid alu fork that on the pics look much like todays touring/gravel bikes. Since i own 89 ST400 sport touring Cdale and love it, but would like to have something with canti brakes/wider tyres, i am wondering regarding that hybrid frameset quality? I asume it is low end of the spectrum but you never know.

Anyone that has experience or know did Cdale was great in that field frame building as they was with 80's series

Cdale frames in the 90s were well made, yes. They were typically the same frame withing a lineup and the differences between models were just components. Based on that picture, the original cable guides are missing so zip-ties are used instead. Functionally fine, aesthetically not great. Just mentioning that in case it matters to you.
