87 Cannondale SR 600,

I got this frame and fork from a seller on craigslist back in April 16. My original idea was for it be a geared bike for the hills around here. One day I was looking at the frame and wondered if I could throw it together as a single speed. It worked! A 46T front sprocket works well with a 16T freewheel. I finally got around to gearing the bike out and borrowed a few parts off my Klein to get the job done.
