If he did not like the bike, he would not have kept using it for all those trips.

Pretty sure its a T700 from '93. max is 32mm tires with fender or 35mm tires otherwise. Thats going off what remember when I measured over a year ago after buuing the frame.
Im sure itll be a fun ride once built up. Itll be interesting to ride it right before/after my touring bike to feel the difference in flex with that seemingly 60mm downtube.
