Greg Lemond made his first bikes under his name by himself. This looks like one of the first. I think you have a really nice, maybe one of a kind Lemond. Right down to that run in the clear on the lug connecting the HT to DT.
Yeah, I'm wondering if this is a one-of-a-kind frame, since there's absolutely no reference to it anywhere on the internet. It seems like, with all the interest in track bikes recently, that more than one would have bubbled to the surface.

Billato sounds right to me. Repost in Classic and vintage or get one of the mods to move this thread. One of the dudes in C&V will know for sure.
Billato also did Giordana frames, I think. So you might compare it against those... it's a beauty though...
according the the sticker on the seat tube it's columbus aelle tubing which was used mostly for mid level bikes. the top of the line bikes used columbus sl or slx tubing.

Thanks for your help guys. I figured out what I need to know, now! I'll post completed photos in the photo thread, eventually.
