58cm CLASSIC Cannondale 12-speed Road Bike, Fully Rebuilt

Seriously tempted to keep this one myself.

Beauutiful early '80s Cannondale road bike, aluminum frame in unbelievable metallic purple with chro-moly steel fork. Original Suntour Cyclone derailleurs and friction downtube shifters, and original polished Sugino GS crankset. Topped off with a barely used black Wrights vintage English leather saddle (similar to a Brooks). Has to be seen in person.

New parts: 
Weinmann AS23X 700c road wheelset
CST Super HP 700x25c tires
KMC nickel plated chain, 
Origin8 black cork bar tape
Brake and shifter cables and housing

Stripped down to the frame, cleaned and built back up with fresh bearing grease at the headset and bottom bracket. Ridden ~50 yards since rebuild.

The paint is excellent aside from a few chips on the downtube. You couldn't ask for a lot better from a bike this age. No dings or dents. It should be possible to touch up easily.

Ideal for riders from around 5'10" to 6'2". Ready to ride maintenance free. $440
