Miele ... What kind?

I'm picking up this bike this weekend and I'm trying to get an idea of what exactly I'm getting.

All I know is that it is a Miele with a tange 5 frame.

Can anyone identify and give me a rough appraisal?



Thanks,

Tom

do you have any better pics? the RD and Z series (I think) make me think it is a lower midlevel, something like a Bianchi Premio or the older Special.

are the wheels steel? I do like the butterfly nuts on the front wheel though.

the fork looks like and replacement that might be....

personally unless this was free I may stay away from it.


PS something looks odd about the blue Tange decal and the RD with an hanger

I agree. The rear derailleur hanger may be bent or stripped out. I do not know if it is merely an optical illusion in the photo or not, but it also looks as if the upper part of the fork may bend backwards a little before it sweeps forward, which would indicate a head on collission with a car or tree.

Thanks for the help guys

Here is the link for the ad on Kijiji ... not worth the $100 they're asking?

those pics don't help to see the condition of the bike. They do make the fork look worse though

It looks like it was built with whatever was laying around.

Pass.
