Cannondale G-Star RAW Custom Bad Boy 8-speed Size M – SUPER RARE Limited Edition

SKU: 254401232248 Category:

Description

The Cannondale RAW was limited edition custom collaboration with the G-Star fashion brand from 2007. Built around their flagship urban bike, the Bad Boy Ultra 8, it features a custom military-style olive drab paint job, upgraded components, custom fenders, and leather saddle & grips by Brooks. Only a handful of these bikes were made and were only sold in Europe, so they are especially rare in the USA. It is a fantastic commuter bike, with a smooth ride and a head-turning design. People frequently stop me on the street to ask about it. Google “Cannondale Gstar raw” and there are a lot of articles still up about it. It is a size Medium, and will fit men or women 5 foot 6 inches to 6 feet tall. See photo 12 for a geometry sheet from Cannondale’s catalog with all measurements. I am the second owner of this bike, having bought it in 2009. Since then, I have replaced or overhauled several parts to keep it in top running order. It was used to commute around NYC and stored inside, never used off-road or left out in the rain. FEATURES: – Shimano Alfine 8-speed internally geared hub – Upgraded Brooks leather saddle with suspension – Cannondale Headsight integrated rechargeable headlight – Upgraded Velo Orange handlebars (I will include the original handlebars as well) – Upgraded Headshok suspension with lock out and rebound adjustment CONDITION: – All mechanical parts in good working order, ready to ride – The Headsight headlight is missing its charger and needs a new On/Off switch. It can be repaired at most electronics repair shops. – The tail light needs new batteries – The rear fender has cracked at the mounting point (see photo 11). I repaired it with two pieces of metal, and it’s secure and works fine. – The disc brakes work well but are squeaky and might need the rotors cleaned. – I had the entire original Headshok front suspension removed in 2012 and replaced with latest model available. The original Headshok had issues with the seals and Cannondale stopped making parts for it, so I upgraded it at a Cannondale dealership to make sure it would work and be repairable one the future if anything happened. The new Headshok has worked flawlessly since then, and I had it routinely maintained by a Cannondale-certified mechanic in 2014 and 2016. – I will include a free shock pump that you need in order to keep the proper air pressure in the Headshok (only needs to be done 2-3 times a year and is easily done at home without special tools). – Tires are the original Vredesteins in a custom color. They are worn given the bike’s age but still have miles left in them. I never replaced them because they are custom. – The top tube protector is not the original one. The G-Star denim one it came with was missing when I bought the bike so I had someone make a copy of the original out of waxed canvas to match the leather saddle. SHIPPING: – This is a large and relatively heavy bike, as well as valuable, so shipping costs a bit more. – I will have the bike professionally packed at a bike shop and shipped by them. – If shipping costs less than the flat rate, I will refund the difference and provide receipts.
