I've found a home built 2004 Lemond Poprad, LX/105/Durace, for $450. Has no decals but looks great. Owner said they flaked off. Is this common?
I want to switch the barcons over to brifters (105).
Anything I should think/worry about?

I just sold my 2001 Poprad for $400 without wheels. So you got a pretty good deal.
Decals flaked off? That's really odd if you ask me. I Think that the downtube decal on all of the Poprads was a large wrap-around that covered half of the downtube with the LeMond sticker. I suppose that the small "Poprad" decal could have come off with active use.
Keep the barcons. There's no advantage of having combination shifters and they are a lot more liable to failure in nasty conditions, more expensive, heavier and more expensive to replace.

Wow a 1004 thats vintage man :D
I'd say you got a good deal though it is wierd the decals peeled off. You might be able to replace them if it matters. I agree too that bar cons are a great set up for cross...
hey if ya don't want the barcons i'll buy them off you...
The deacals on my '04 Poprad are all in good condition, but they don't see any harsh weather here in So. Cal. I bought my Poprad used aswell, and I've loved it for the past 3 1/2 weeks (445 miles) that I've had it. Mine came with a different setup though; barend shifters, Ultegra crank and rear der., 105 front der., upgraded seat and front brakes.
