Cannondale buildup

Postby ACT SC600 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 11:19 pm

Hi, just a few pics of my Cannondale build up
Started with the bike I picked up from evil bay
Image
Stripped it when it got home
Image
Image
Decided on Phantom black for the forks and stem
Image
And Ultimate Green for the frame
Image
Pearl
Image
The proud painter
Image
Part assembled with the original 105 groupset
Image
Then I stumbled on a Tiagra groupset 9 speed on allclassifieds for a bargain
Image
Downtube
Image
Giant stem painted
Image
SRAM 8 from a 9 on a 126mm hub
Image
Tiagra crank
Image
BBB speed bar with cannondale cork tape
Image
Drivers side crank
Image
Hopefully this in the right place (20 plus years young!!!)

I really like that paint effect. Mind sharing how you did that? BTW, I ride an old Cannondale too.

Cheers Tony... It's quite easy... All done with pressure packs (rattle cans).. Lay down the base color, the lay down the pearl over the base once this is done lightly sand back with 600 then lay on 5 ~ 6 light coats of clear.
I googled the paint code for the Ford RS color then I went into my local auto paint store and they made up the two tins (I had some clear at home)... While I was in the store they had a specials bin with a tin of the phantom black in which I also bought for forks and stem
This is the original crank I painted before I purchased the Tiagra groupset

Boy, didn't she scrub up nicely :D Always was a fan of the smooth welds on the US built 'Dales.

The paint colour really suits the frame and I also like the aesthetics of the build too. Very nice job.

Excellent work. Most important question though, how does she ride?

awesome awesome job, also a very big fan of these dales. I believe this model was also one of the higher end crit models back in the day.

still kicking myself for letting one go in my size for wayyy too cheap :oops:

Thanks for the great comments... In the sun the paint looks awesome... And the ride is nice and smooth (been riding just on my street as I was waiting for my SPD shoes to show up - finally showed up today!!) Since I posted the orig pics I landed some Felt rims which I put on so I now have 18 gears and the 105s on Arayas have been donated to the Pace bike... I have the Syntace bars which are now phantom black but I am still tossing up if I should put them on...
