Big tire road frame and fork with Cantilever brakes

The future owner of this frame used to be a pro roadie. I'm wondering when he last had a steel frame and fork.....must have been a long time ago as virtually none of the bikes used by pros are steel any more, at least on the road.
The tubeset is fairly light but not delicate as the frame weighs in at 4 lbs. 2 oz. , a good weight for a bike that will see some bad roads.
While the frame has no provision for a rack, it is fully fitted with spots to anchor full fenders as this bike will see some wet weather.
Here's the unicrown fork , probably the most popular style that comes out of my shop. These blades look like standard 'cross unicrowns but they are a bit stouter and will be good on rough dirt.
