On the other hand, I also think he should just contact Canadian Customs and ask them what he needs or how much the duty might be on a 35 yr old bike.
In that case there’d be no kind of discussion with customs. Shipping co. would just turn it over to customs to assess.

Get it shipped to closest US border point (much cheaper). Go down and take a weekend bike tour. Come home with it on the bumper. A holiday and a bike import all in one!
