Cannondale Alpine Series (SM500)

I'm looking to buy the first "real" bike of my younger days, a 1988 Cannondale Alpine Series, blue/yellow in the largest size.

Like this one...

Sorry it's not the largest size nor is it for sale but it's a beauty and I hope you find one. Mine's back on the road in a week or two with some upgrades. Good luck.

That is a beauty. Thanks for sharing. Dig the white balloon tires and chrome fenders.

So far not much luck searching. There is one sitting on eBay but... it's local pick-up only 800 miles away, it's small, and a little roughed up.

Sold mine originally because I started accruing too many bikes and lived in an area where mountain biking was good so full suspension made more sense. Now I live in a coffee table flat college town and I want my old bike back.

Now where have I heard that before?
BTW, they're NOS ESGE fenders. Has a Syncros stem, original bars and is getting a ti seatpost with mostly XT gear. Can't wait.
Good luck again

Did you ever find this bike? I just found one on eBay that was brand new sitting unbuilt in the box since 1988!! It’s the same color and a 22”. And, this guy had 2 such bikes! (His dad owned a bike shop and these bikes were found boxed up)
