You ask him if he has a will?

That's a shame, but perhaps it has sentimental value or maybe if he sells it he'll feel like he's basically given up?

If you know him well enough, perhaps you could get him to give you first refusal on it.

Leave your contact info with him in case he changes his mind.
That fork brace doesn't fit the story on that original owner bike.
I can't picture a farmer adding a fork brace to ride around the farm.

trading work for it is a great idea! I'm sure he could use some help being 87 & all. He's probably a little lonely, maybe more conversation would soften him some. except for seat, bike looks damn good!
