yo Lucian, it's a very much sought-after and iconic Cannondale Track 1000.

Click on one of the tags under the photo to find out plenty more.

Here's the thing. I have this bike: https://picasaweb.google.com/108243365284243465129/Proiect#5631137931959822530 , finished in the meantime with wheels and saddle, rolling. I found it in this catalogue here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2F66.147.244.179%2F~vintagm8%2Fyear%2F1994%2F1994.pdf on page 23. So it's not the track version, but a triathlon / time trial version called R1000. Now, do you happen to know about how much this frame + fork would be worth? I'm thinking to put it up for sale on ebay, since it's not really my size and I'd rather do longer tours than triathlon/time trial. Your input would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Lucian, I'm sorry to say I don't really know anything about those type of bikes.

But you could try to look for the closed auction of similar bikes on Ebay to get an idea of the value.
