Vintage Cannondale Ad. May the 4th be with you.

I know, it's been a while...

During today's opening Giro stage, I stumbled upon the fact that today is also Star Wars Day (who knew?), which made me break out this ad from 1980. Yep, my history records for Cannondale even go way back. Evidently, we got served with a cease and desist on this from Lucas films (maybe 20th Century Fox). I was told by my elders (there are only a few left), that these were kids in stormtrooper costumes. Remember, this was 1980 when cosplay wasn't a thing yet - those things must have cost a fortune!
