Thanks. There are no decals on the re-painted frame. Since the new base color was white, I believe the lettering was masked off with a stencil when the black panel was applied. The headtube would be considered artwork. Most quality frame painters could supply or reproduce decals. I know Spectrum indicated that they could provide several Lemond styles. The lettering I choose is not really a Lemond style. The original frame had the traditional block letters from the late 90s without any panels.
Here is mine. Just finished having it built today. I think she looks pretty bad ass. Bought the frame and built it up. It's a combo of 2011 Ultegra/105 with Truvative carbon cranks, and some Farsports carbon clinchers. The bars are ITM Kswords. The frame looks brand new for an 05 or 06, I don't think it was ever ridden. I like to call it a retro mod.
I've always liked this Chambery for its simple colour scheme. It has an almost titanium quality look and feel to it. I liked it so much I bought a used frame and fork this year and built it up with Campagnolo Record, Chorus and Centaur carbon, plus Zipp SL stem and handlebars in carbon. Pro-Lite bracciano silver alloy wheels, Selle SLK saddle, latest Bontrager xxx lite seatpost and Michelin Pro 4's.
I've got a thread in the Bikes forum as well...but thought I'd put the pictures here too. Just picked this up off Craigslist on Tuesday. 1999 Lemond Zurich....all stock and in perfect shape. I've only gotten one ride in so far, but I already love it.

]I bought this on ebay at a reasonable price. I am wondering if it is really a lemond as the decals looka bit dodgy. Also I am told it is titanium but I am guessing that this is an 80's frame and i dont think titanium was around then and check out the thinness of the tubes at the seatpost. Anu information from anybody out there? [/ATTACH]
My 2004 Buenos Aires. Grabbed the frame on Ebay and everything else is brand new. Closest thing I ever had to a new bike and love it! The paint isn’t original, but I can’t find any glaring faults. I’ve put a bunch of miles on it and love it! Rides well, looks good, and didn’t break the bank. I look forward to several years of riding bliss on this one!</SPAN>
I just started to restore my old 1997 LeMond Zurich back to being fully road worthy. I need to get my butt back on her when she's done...
The bike is all stock with upgraded King Headset and Look pedals. The Shimano Ultegra 600 STI shifters need to be well cleaned as the factory grease is all gummed up. Soon it'll be road ready then I must be also...
