Latest score for $90, must have been repainted professionaly as there's no decals on the bike and they would have been clear coated, original Shimano 600 brakes headset crank derailleurs and front wheel, looks like original stem bars and seatpost, has a different rear wheel Alex rim hub is Shimano but doesn't match the 600 front, coda seat, very nice carbon/alloy fork a bit small for but so far seems nice to ride, plan is to fully strip clean grease and replace cables and rebuild and of cause probably keep it

That Shimano tricolor group is really good stuff. I would be concerned with the bonded carbon fork, the bonds between the carbon fork blades and the aluminum dropouts and the steel steerer will give at some point due to oxidation and corrosion. You would likely be better served with a new carbon fork, even a cheapo overseas model would have superior performance and strength to the vintage carbon

Thanks Matti iv always liked the 600 groupset and the tricolour added that extra visual look I'm pleased to own the full set bar the back wheel even though it all has some degree of road rash, never been one for carbon and do worry about old carbon but the fork will stay for now
 
So overhauled it slowly over last month, strip clean polish, replaced seat with a Charge seat replaced inner and outer cables replaced stem and bar with polished alloy bits, replaced some bolts with gold ano bolts, found some nice friction shifters sand polished and painted, painted bottle cage to match shifters, new brake levers new FUNN lockon grips, new pedals and chain

I'm still enjoying this bike so much, I swapped the quell stem adaptor and threadless stem for a nice polished alloy ovalized quell stem, my friend and I swapped as he needed an adaptor, I came out on top with that deal me thinks, I'm in the process of colabing with the bro on another cannondale, I will post up soon on that build progress, I think I should become Cannondales 'R' us as I've got 3 and the bro has the same and we both building at the moment
