The subject bicycle appears to be a 1987 Miele Condor. It was a road/sport model, 3rd from the bottom of the line. THe 600 derailleurs are probably the similar looking Light Action derailleurs, which were OEM. Crankset is an SR SXC, while the brakes should be Dia-Compe 400 and the wheels were spec'd as Ambrosio Elite 700C rims laced to Sansin hubs. However, doen't get too depressed by mainly upper entry level components,as they reside on a frame with an Ishiwata 022 main triangle and CrMo fork.

This one is is in rough condition. In addition to the noted areas, the lever hoods are missing, the pedals have been replaced with cheap resin units and the chainrings also appear to be new. Let's hope they replaced the cahin and freewheel at the same time but it looks questionable. I hope the bearings are OK, as this one has seen a lot of use.

I'd appreciate the serial number, which should be near the bottom of the seat tube, often on the back side. TIA.
