Is this a real Koga Miyata?

I need help identifying this Koga Miyata. The seller says the model is a 'Black Snake' but I can't find anything about it and don't think Koga Miyata ever made a model with that name...
Anybody has and idea if it's a real Koga Miyata and what model it is?
The seller thinks the bike dates from around 1997.
Thank you!

There has not been a Black Snake and the bike is certainly older than '97. It could still very well be a Koga however. The pic does not unveil much about the detailing, so I can't tell you for sure. Are that Super Record levers?
