Cannondale SM 1000 Red Shred

Year:
1988
  • One of my absolutely favorites, a 88th custom painted red shred. Found this beautiful frameset on eBay and it came from Hungary. the Price was ok the shipping costs horrible high but how often do you get a chance to get a Hand on custom painted C´Dales? Here in Germany it´s something like a "once in a lifetime" opportunity. So I had to get it...

    A few weeks later it arrived perfectly packaged...

    And it looked good enough for me...

    The frameset has some rough scratches but nothing too bad and all the custom painting are undamaged...

    I rebuilt this one with a DX group. First I used IRC Piranha tires on this one, because I had nothing else on Hand. Later I decided to get a pair of Panaracer Pasela for this one as the size of the frameset doesn´t fit me for rough Terrain (therefore I prefer 16 or 18 inches). So this one has become a daily commuter for the city...

    But I consider to get a pair of Panaracer Smoke on this one because the Paselas are looking a little bit tiny just being 1.75 tires...
