Just bought this today the frame number is 350196 I have been told it is a 1990. The frame is hand made and signed it has a dura ace front mech shimano 600 chainset and shifters, the brakes are shimano 105 and the headset is campagnolo. I want to keep this bike as original as possible can anyone give me any info on the original spec any help would be much appreciated :D :D :D :D

I had one that looks identical. Mine was a 1994 GAN model.
Judging by the decals yours is the same model. It looks like a pre Trek Bilato built Lemond team Gan. IIRC its GLX tubing. Trek had a similar scheme later on but never had the decals.
If you look under the rear brake bridge there may be some letters indicating which brother Bilato built the frame, mine had SYLV.
The man to know definatively is Lemondfan
Hope this helps
Jamie

Spot on Jamie I educated you well !! Not really much more to add one the last Lemond colour schemes before Trek bought the name.

Made by Billato Bros in Italy

I personally always prefer the previous logo but thats my own choice. Lovely frame BTW.

I think this would have been Mavic but need to check my mags, I have an article on a 93 Gan frame that year tha Mavic & Mavic Zap and sure they didnt go back to Campagnolo. Other kit is TA cages (can still be bought new off ebay), Gan TA bottles, cinelli 65 or 66 bars and Cinelli XA or ideally Cinelli Grammo Stem, finished with Cinelli Splash (yellow & Black) ribbon. Think pedals were Time

Will get the full spec tomorrow. All this kit can still be obtained new off ebay with a bit of hunting.

I'd have a word with John he seams to be the man for sniffing out good Mavic parts at the mo. He might know where there is more of the same :wink:

Those are a bit too old, I m no expert on Mavic but the older logo (Red) must date to early 80's. Ideally you need the newer logo (Yellow). If you search GP4 NOS 36 hole rims on ebay you will see what I mean. I m going in my garage later so will dig out the article from 93.

It is worth searching for the period and correct parts follow the link to my creation, makes me smile everytime I look at it (you need to be logged in to see pics)
