    Looks to be mid '80s with those graphics and lugged frame.

    Hey world, this is still for sale. Don't know much about the way these things were built corresponding to what decade, but the serial number on rear dropout is GC715686.

    GC7 would be...
    G=Giant
    C=5th or 6th week
    7=last digit of the year

    This numbering system started in '87...so it would be an '87 or '97... graphics narrow it down to '87.

    I'm not going to get a lot of love for this, but I like it better now that it's a Giant from Taiwan. Kinda leads to a build theme...

    Pickup/shipped: Can be picked up if local, shipped if you pay and I get a guarantee you ain't no scammer.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I was just going by the Schwinn identification system on the internet. I really had no idea what year it was.

    Hey world, thanks for the info. This bike was given to me from an amateur bike building buddy of mine. He found the frame cheap and went WAY overboard restoring it. I'd imagine the brakes and the rear hub are worth more than the asking price. He doesn't want it back, I can't keep it due to space limitations, so it's gotta go. Hopefully, someone in SoCal wants it. I don't even know how to ship a bike.
