I actually sold it to my neighbor. She was getting back into racing and wanted to try a road bike before she bought an expensive model.

Which she did soon after buying the LM.

Yet another generic Italian bike that rode fine. imho

Anyone know what "LM" might stand for?

This is the Initials of the builder Luigi Montagner
I hope to find him alive and well in Italy, does anybody else have familiarity for Mr Montagner? His bike building heyday was thru all of the 80's from what I gathered. Prior to that or around same time he built framesets for the Polish and Chechoslovakia national teams
