1991 Trek 990

I have been on the lookout for a Trek 750, but in the mean time I found a lugged Trek 990. My main bike is too nice to lock up, plus I couldn't afford to replace it if anything happened to it, so I've been on the hunt for an older lugged steel bike that I can lock up in front of a store and not worry.

The paint and tires are toast, all of the original Deore parts are still there, though quite filthy. I took it for a spin yesterday and was surprised at how light it is for such a sturdy feeling bike. It looks like it will be a good winter project.

Any recommendation on street tires for an old MTB?

I will be picking it up this afternoon.

I've seen exceptionally clean models going for fairly high prices, so I am curious what project prices are for these models.
