Is LeMond's '89 Bottechia TT bike hanging on the wall at Trek?

This guy said he saw it there about 5 years ago.
Is this true? If not, where is it? Was it re-painted in Team Z colors?
I figure is should be in a museum.

I also read somewhere that it is a Cinelli -- is this true?

"I rode that bike. Broken wheel and all, it was FAST. Maybe it was the the 54 or 56 tooth chainring, I forget what was on it. My sister still has the headbadge off of it.

I worked in the paint shop at Ten Speed Drive Imports distributer of LeMond bikes at the time. It was sent to us after the season to be repainted as a LeMond in Team Z colors, I never saw it again until I took a tour of Treks headquarters a couple of years ago and it was bolted to the wall."
