Looking for info on a late 80s Miele Road Bike

I found this late 80s Miele road bike in my grandfather's storage barn. I was curious if anyone could tell me what model the bike is. I have researched the Miele company (mainly via previous posts on this site) so I don't need company history, I am mainly just curious as to its model. The serial number I found on the bottom of the bike was W8022542. The code (LK) on the Shimano brakes dates the bike to November of 1987 (BR-257?). The original saddle said December of 87. It has Suntour Accushift 4050(?) shifters. The wheel hubs are Suzue and the rims are Ambrosio high pressure rims. The original tires were dry rotted when I found it and have since been discarded. It has a SAE 4130 Ishiwata CrMo sticker on it as well. The original pedals are HTI A19 pedals. I have uploaded some photos of the bike. I would greatly appreciate any info about the type of bike this is. I have just gotten into biking and have been riding it casually.

The Miele you have found is pretty close to their entry level model, and might well be a Milel "Condor". You can find a bit more information about the Miele bicycle on this page.

Hope this is a help.
