Miele Road Issue 80's with original chain!

First post! I got gifted this Miele and was shocked that it has a complete Shimano 600 Tricolor set up- like everything hardly used. Cranks, BB, front & rear derailleur cassette, original chain, hubs, brake levers, shifters, and headset. Pretty cool to find it all in incredible condition with a few scratches her and there. It has iscaselle leather seat too. Just need to swap out the ugly blue Hutchinson tires and it should be good to go. What's something like this worth?

If it fits you? Priceless

Not sure about bike prices in Utah? Miele is a slightly lesser known name (Canadian) that does make some nice and very nice bikes. To quote @wrk101 "Don't waste time looking for sales data for the exact model. Instead, look at similar bikes, with similar quality tubing, similar components, etc. Pretty much all the manufacturers bought parts from the same suppliers. At most, the only thing Miele built was the frame, and they bought the tubing from someone else." - Miele Gara Road Issue - Value?

Plenty of info available, most right here on BF, many find it easier to find the threads through google:

Nice find! I picked one up around March up in Ogden for not much money. If I remember correctly it was around $120 with a mix of parts. I did a full rebuild with 600 Tricolor parts except for using Ultegra 9 speed STI Shifters. I really like the ride of this one now that it is finished. Quite a nice riding bike so you should certainly enjoy yours.

Here's a thread on mine that shows the build and condition when I got it for what I thought was a cheap price.

Miele Latina - What's a steel addict to do...

Then here's another thread with it finished up. This is another one where I really don't know what a good value is. I'm sure in today's market it's a lot less than what I put into it.

Quick Photoshoot of the Miele Latina

If I was trying to resell mine here in Utah I would swap the Zonda wheels for some Kyserium SL's I have and don't particularly care for. Then I'd swap out my Kurve saddle for one of my spare Flite saddles and still listed it at $400. Usually great pictures and a little patience will sell a nice steel bike here without too much effort. Most are not going to know the Miele name so that may be the biggest problem.

If it fits, just get that beauty out on the road and enjoy it.
