early spec

I got in contact with the original project manager at Cannondale for the Black LIghtning series. I have an early all Superbe Pro which was found to be prohibitively expensive, and the Sprint and other components were chosen in later production runs.
Here is mine.
Regardless of build they are all a perfect blend of sexy and power.

Pics! Black Lightning

This would be the 1989 SR500 BL. This has the cantilevered triangle of the then new 3.0 frameset. Beautiful bike. Amongst all the new frames and colors, these still stand out and get a great deal of attention. I'll post some better pics of mine. It's an '88.

Here's the specs:

I look forward to seeing your pics.
