Not sure Tourmalet means touring, but beautiful bike.

Sweet, that'll be a nice ride. I love LeMonds. By coincidence, it was a Lemond day for me. I rode the old Vento 23 miles then went home and finally swapped my Williams System 30 wheels onto my Tourmelet. Built up and ready to go it weighs 18 lbs, 12 ozs. Yours is beautiful.

Oh,and Tourmelet comes from one of the mountain stages in the TDF. Like the Ventoux and today's stage up Mont Ventoux.

@Danbianchi881, can I just farm out bike hunting to you? You get great finds at great prices. I prefer a 57-58, or a 23" frame.

That's my bike. I got mine from insurance after t-boning a van turning left in front of me and I must say it's one of my fave rides. I 'upgraded' from the RSX brifters (still have 'em) to barcons and a road triple in the front. Really nice ride for the money. edit; Not rare but a well made production bike. Definitely road, no touring involved.
