I have and 82 Nishki Olympic 12, converted to 700c and longer reach brakes. it takes a conti gatorskin in 28 really easily

more of an issue if it is 27 inch rim is relative lack of 27 in tires available and that 27 inch tires did not come that big. Almost for sure it will take 27 1 1/4 but gets iffy at 27 1 3/8 and there wasnt much bigger IIRC
Life is too short not to ride the best bike you have, as much as you can
