Anyone Ride a Lemond Here?

I think I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a '01 Lemond Zurich. My current bike is a LOOK 585 which is a gem! But I'm bored and just want something in steel to play with.

Lemonds are famous for longer top tubes but since I ride a 48-49, the 47cm I'm looking at will fit me fine with a 50.5 TT. This is made with 853 tubing which is still great tubing for frames today if used correctly. I think most of the custom Waterfords still use 853. But the Lemonds while light....weren't really super light but some of that came from the componentry.

Just wondering if I should see and ride this as a vintage bike or if I should throw more $ at it to knock off a couple of pounds? Always loved the paint job on this particular model and have always been a "Greg fan".

Any thoughts or opinions? Thanks.
