Thats a really lovely Giant.
I love this one with its lugged rando frame, how does it ride loaded and unloaded?
Theres been a few nice old Giants on here lately.
They dont seem to get the love that many other brands get, cant understand it really as I have had a couple over the years and they are extremely well made and usually well equipted at very reasonable prices.

I have been getting in to randonneur style bikes since buying the Evans Super Tourist, really like this. Hope you enjoy it!

I have not ridden the bike, first refurbishing

Giant in those days, was a unknown brand, Koga Miyata offered a helping hand
