    The catalog says it's Tange Prestige tubing, and assuming it's the single-butted seat tube the wall thickness at the seatpost end is 0.6mm, so would take a 27.2mm seatpost.

    I've no idea how many '81 model year Giant labeled bikes were made in late 1980, but it looks like you have one. I wouldn't be surprised if it has value as a collectable.
