@Lbxpdx 990s were top tier mountain bikes made with good steel tubing. Your 990 is a really nice bike. The ratty paint and will help prevent theft, but definitely lock it up with a quality u-lock and tape or paint over the Trek brand name to make it even lower profile. Rigid MTBs in general make great bomber city bikes, especially if they have rack and/or fender mounts.

Here's a thread with a ton of recommendations for 26" tires for exactly this purpose: The 26" Tire and Wheel Thread

What do you mean by project prices? Are you looking for a valuation of the bike or the cost to refurb it?
