Miele Road Issue Value help

I was looking at this Miele and I was having trouble finding anything on the bike as far as specs and value since it seems there isn't much information out there to begin with, would anyone be able to help with both identifying and maybe valuing it so I would be able to make an offer on it? The only clue to a model is the "Road Issue" insignia on the TT but other than that not much, sadly the seller didn`t have a drive side photo to get a look at the component level thats on it, but any help is appreciated as always! thanks

The Road Issue moniker was used on all the Miele models, depending on the year. While the pictures are poor for the purposes of identification, I believe this is a circa 1993 Lupa with mainly Shimano 105SC. However, it has also been frankenbiked to at least some extent, based on the bar tape, Coda stem (Cannondale), saddle (Softride) and QR levers. The crankset doesn't have the self-extracting bolts, I would expect, so it may be RX100 or something lower. Furthermore, it is in very neglected condition.

This bicycle, in very good, riding condition would bring about $300 US in most markets, but given the current condition, I'd want to get this for no more than $100 US and that's assuming I'm correct on the identification.

Thanks for the help T-Mar, it is much appreciated! I do apologize for not having drive side pics but the seller had been stubborn with the information that they've given me to this point. They've consistently insisted that it "only needs tires" haha.

Hmmm...needs more than tires! But you know that...I have had several Miele's go through my hands...the good news is that most of them make good riders!
