I.D. for my mystery Team Lemond Pro bicycle

I have read some information about the the Team Lemond Pro bicycle in online forums and have gathered that this bike would most likely be made by Della Santa or Billato, but the identifying marks for either builders are not present. The D.S. initials are not on the bottom bracket, only a 59 (size of the bike). The brake bridge, although it has the shape of Billato bridges I've seen elsewhere, does not have "Hand Made" stamped on it, but what appears to be MOD. DEP (hard to see through glare of photo) along the flat rectangular middle section, though the "M" is partially obscured by chipped paint.

I heard that Della Santa bikes were done by Cycle Art, and my bicycle does have that logo down near the bottom bracket on top of the non-drive chainstay.

Can anyone give me information on the possible builder of this version of the bike?

I believe most of these were built by Carnielli (Bottecchia). Billato took over later on the TSD imported bikes and then Trek after that.
