Shimano 600 groupset on VéloClub Bonelli?

Got this bike in a garage sale for nothing.. It is in great shape but I have never heard of this brand.. Actually, I'm not even sure if it's a Bonelli or à Veloclub since the biggest decal says VeloClub. It has Shimano 600 components which is good.. but is it 600 EX arabesque or something more specific?

The derailleurs, shifters and brakes are 2nd generation 600, known officially as Shimano 600 EX and colloquially as 600 Arabesque. The hubs might be 600 EX too, but I can't tell from these pictures. The crankset and headest definitely aren't 600 EX.

Veloclub was a brand of Velo Sport which was part of the Procycle group. Based on all the component clamps and 27" wheels, it is an entry level model and appears to be from the early to mid-1980s. If the components are OEM, it should be pre 1984. The aero levers are definitely out of place for the 600EX calipers.

I would say the bike is from around 82 or so and is a slightly nicer entry level model. Pretty basic high-ten lugged Japanese frame with stamped dropouts and a mix of nice but lower end components the 600 stuff and the allow wheels a are a bit nicer than whats on most entry level models. It should make a very nice basic rider as for value I would say $150-200 in good working shape.
