Since you seem to be all into the traditional artisan angle, how about a Worksman bicycle hand-built in the good ole US of A by a company that's been building trade bicycles since 1898?...

Yes agree. He should talk to a custom framebuilder. He's tall, heavy, and wants what is (bizarrely) these days an unusual riding position. It would be a fun project for a custom builder.

I think you are asking too much of the system. Work face to face with someone who fits and or builds bikes if you want a custom; or shop extensively if you want to try something off the shelf.
