Please help me identify this Cannondale

Good day and thank you in advance for your time, I picked up this bike at a yard sale, the frame is structurally sound, no dents or severe scratches, but everything else is garbage and needs all to be changed, but I have no idea what model of Cannondale it is, there's no name or markings, wondering if someone could kindly identify this and to answer the following questions:

1- I'm used to mountain bikes only but always wanted a commuter/hybrid like this, but the handlebar is very short, is this designed to perform well like this? or can I replace with a wider handlebar?

2- I can buy whole shimano MTB groupsets from eBay, would any 9 speed groupset fit this? with hydraulic brakes?

3- Is this bike worth restoring and keeping? or it's pretty old and I should resell and move on?

Thank you

Bobak

P.S I have pictures but I can neither post them here nor provide a link to some other photo sharing site because I have less than 10 posts, is there any way I can share the pictures?

The alternative is lots and lots of SPAM posts. You weren’t a member when you’d come to a subforum like this to see the first two pages taken up by SPAM posts from a bot.

It is against the rules.
You can post in "Introduction", and welcome others. And perhaps there are other threads of interest.

The 10 post requirement has been very effective at discouraging spammers and scammers.
