Nice. Who built these, still Billato (sp) at this point? Also shame they used the same style decals on the later Tre-monds (assumign this isn't one!)

Not sure what happened to these listings as everyone was pulled in the last day. Obviously the owner wanted more although auctions tend to go mad in the last 30 mins. Think I might try and get a Gan frame sometime and build up perhaps build with a later Mavic ZAP Mektronic groupset, one or two on ebay at the mo

Anyway they would have been Billato built, easiest way to tell is they should have the greg lemond signature and 'hand made' stamped into the rear brake bridge with black detailing to highlight. Also they should normally have Silvo stamped lighlty on the underside of the brake bridge to signify the frame builder (Silvano Billato)

As the other owners say for some reason they do seam fast, although the bike I owned before was a £180 Peugeot Pantera back in 1989 so no doubt it would ride different to a Lemond
