1989 Cannondale SR800 "Criterium"

A riding partner was always trying to get me into racing back then and this was the ultimate "Boy Racer". Good and stiff, and all Shimano 600 - a competitive bike at a GREAT price.
Whoever raced this one back then did a great job of stripping the decals and adding a couple of Shiner Beer decals as well as Racer X, Spaceman Spiff, and a flaming 8 Ball.
A garage sale find; the tires had rotted off, and the tire bag had a patch kit with a 1995 date on the sales tag - probably when it was last hung up to dry.

Original Shimano 600 "Tricolor" group mostly with gunmetal gray finish
