I also keep an eye out for Trek era Lemonds at the right price.
Actually, under the paint (and depending on the year) the Maillot Jaune, Zurich, Buenos Aries, & Alpe de Huez are pretty much the same frames with only minor variations in the tubeset (853 Pro vs. 853 'designer select'); however the MJ & Z were the first to go to 1 1/8" OS carbon forks, & parts-spec varied from year to year.
