Giant Cadex 980c dating sometime between 1987 and 1989 and being a combination of Carbon tubing and aluminium joints was probably a breakthrough bike leading the way to a carbon future for Giant and other bicycle manufacturers.

A note about our used bicycles. All Items are genuine vintage and whilst in full working order, may also so show signs of age or own some distinguishing marks. As well as these signs of character  there may also be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. Where possible we have tried to show these on photographs. These small imperfections are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age.The bikes are not new.
