Built by the Giant Bicycle Corporation.
'535' is just a fancy name for Giant's inhouse 4130 chrome moly double butted tubing. A name similar to '531', but meaningless really.

I thought about upgrading the gear/brake/rims, but I actually like the fact that she is all original, so I might just shout myself a new bike

Although they replaced the tires a couple of months ago, my local old Repco friendly bike shop are having trouble laying their hands on a wheel. They said they might be able to build one eventually when they can get hold of the parts, but this sounds like it could take months.
They've suggested pinching a wheel off another old bike, but I don't have a car to get to the places where I might find one. (Public transport in Canberra is, hmmmm, not great.) And I'm not sure I could discern what would be the right size or worth salvaging. I've searched on the web thinking I'd be able to buy one online but have come up goose eggs. Any suggestions?

If components are original (and Shimano), you can check out the Shimano date codes for an idea of what year your bike is.....
