This is a project that got us really thrilled. It was a Cannondale Caad5 R3000 that was in this amazing blue fade when Jonathan first brought it in.

Having been a fan of old Cannondales, Joshua was thrilled to see this frameset in the store. Jonathan had decided to give his american stallion a makeover after seeing Tom's Tarmac being repainted.

Always having a memory of the spectacular scenery at the beach over in Barcelona where he spent a vacation with his girlfriend, he decided on the colourway of his caad5 that best represented how special it is to him.

The end result? A one-off Caad5 for sure! What a romantic guy you are JK!
