1990 Cannondale Black Lightning

Legendary name and design! I used many modern components for eficiency but the frame, fork, handlebar+stem, headset and break calipers are original, to perserve its pure line. I even used black anodized cables to avoid distracting the eye by small details. And this bike is very efficient, you feel that it's a racing machine, even if it's 30 years old.
