Awesome! Older Cannondales always look good built with new (especially Campy) components. The only thing I would suggest is to remove the decals from the fork...otherwise, perfect.

Love those older raw cannondale's. If it was mine I would probably using metal polish on it every day. What was the weight of the raw frame and the fork?

The frame was from 2.8 serie, this means 1,27 kg for a mid size (like mine), this Look fork is 330 grams including internal expander , original fork was aluminum with a weight over 500 grams

I understand perfectly the look you mean but atm I wouldn't remove them because in the future these parts could be less saleable, sad but true :|

I want to ask a question

I want to buy a cannodale r500 frame and change the fork with a carbon one.

Do i have to buy 1’’ fork and 1’' headset or a 1 1.8’’ fork and headset?

What did you used for the bottom bracket?

P.S.

New to bike builds
