The bike is a Leader LD-720 TT. It was an entry level time trial style bike sold by Leader Bikes, whose web site dabac mentioned above. That frame does have a replaceable derailleur hanger, so the frame isn't necessarily garbage if the hanger's broken long as replacement hangers are available.

But when hangers break, you need to ask how and why. Did the derailleur get shifted or bent into the spokes? Is the derailleur damaged? Is the wheel damaged?

Even without the derailleur and/or hanger problem, I would've said you could probably do better for the price. With the damage, I'd probably avoid the bike entirely unless you really know what you're doing and get it marked down *substantially* from the asking price.
