I have finally found a photo of Lemond riding my white Reynolds 753 lugged Look bike, that I posted about recently. I thought I would post something about where I located the photo, since quite a few people were interested in the history around that time and the bike. The book I found the photo is was the Graham Watson photo book entitled "10 years of cycling photography". If you want any info on the book, just email me. My research thus far, has shown that the while steel LOOK bike was not used near as often as the gray one that is frequently seen under Lemond and Hinault. Fortunatly Graham Watson says under the photo of my bike that Lemond is riding it in the 1986 TdF time trial. I thought that was interesting, since I hadn't thought of it as a so-called time trial bike, because if its conventional nature, but Lemond is definately riding it with a white TT helmet in the 86 tour. If someone is interested, I can photograph the photo and email it to you. Thankfully, the photo is Graham Watson clear, so I can see the components well and there are cobaltos on it. I have only found a couple photos so far, so if anyone finds any more of that bike, please let me know.

Thanks,
