Koga Miyata - What's it Worth?

Stumbled on this listing, I have no interest to buy it, nor am I related to the seller in any way.

However, I'm interested in opinions on value of:
1. the part group (because I have one),
2. Frame (I know there's a lot of Miyata fans here) and
3. Bike as a package.

Now, does this fork look bent to you?

I don't see the bike/model...

Kogas generally sell at about the same as roughly equivalent Miyatas...sometimes a small premium. Some Koga models are unique to Koga Miyata and have no equivalent.

You can go hunting in the catalogue, early 80s I think: https://www.koga.com/en/service/broc...2000-1976).htm

I have an 85 Gentsracer, FM-2 frameset. Very nice rider, though I am using a threaded carbon fork. If you like Miyatas you'll like Koga-Miyata, they are virtually interchangeable. Find your comparable bike in the Miyata catalogue, read the components there in english

Thank you for the pic assist, curbtender!

My main interest here is solely academic. I want opinions on the value b/c I have a very similar part group on one of my herd.
