Almost Classic...Litespeed (1998/1999) ID help needed

Aloha all-

For sale locally is a late 90's Litespeed road bike for sale, and I'm having trouble pinning down the model and year.

Some details (decals, fork) suggest it's a 1998 or 1999, but the owner says it's a Tuscany and this one doesn't have orbital (curved) seat stays.

The seat post binder is integrated, too.

I'm assuming at least some of the components are replacements (600 tricolor, but newer brifters?).

Any ideas what year/model it is and what it's worth?

TIA

The Classic model has straight chainstays --- (my later Classic model ('03ish) however does not have an integrated seat clamp but the older models may have had

Many thanks DMC.

It ended up being a 1997 Catalyst model, originally equipped with 600 tricolor 8spd but with a replacement crank and brifters.

Going to give it a ride and see how it goes.
