So it turns out that the bike is in such good shape because it was stored in the guy's parents's garage for four years. Very little mileage. It's got new-style shifters (by the brake levers)--do you know what year, at the earliest, that would put it? It's a Trek 1400.

Bikes vary in their ability to accept fenders. Generally, modern stuff with short reach calipers like the 1400 likely has is not receptive. STI integrated shifting was introduced in 1990 as DA 8 speed.The 1400 has been around a long time so the model and STI do nothing to date it other than post 91.
