Very low end, very clean. With fresh bar tape and tires, it could do OK. Market dependent.

Don't know, but pretty sure I owned hat bike back in the early 80s. I believe I paid about $150 when it was new.

It's a 1984 model, manufactured in May, by Giant of Taiwan. The open format manufacturing date is visible on the dropout but the G-prefix is obscured.
