The presence of dropout eyelets are consistent with the Premio and Forza models of the era. The Forza was typically equipped with Shimano Exage 500EX derailleurs and 400EX crankset, brakes.and hubs but I see Exage Motion brakes which were discontinued at the end of 1989 and a 105SC rear derailleur. Obviously, it has been frankenbiked to an extent. The frame was made in Asia from an unidentified Tange CrMo double butted tubeset. MSRP was $425 US or $475 US, depending on the exact year.

The subject bicycle is only in fair cosmetic condition and does not appear to have been well cared for, with lots of dirt, scratches and some rust. Generally, this does not bode well for mechanical condition. At $200, I'd pass.
Could you simplify this a bit for me?
