What type of frame is it? It looks like it's supposed to be a cyclocross bike, but the geometry seems almost too long and too low for drop bars.

The bike was originally what we'd now call a hybrid. With a riser bar the frame would have been too short for me but with drops it was spot on. I added a few pictures of the completed project. Stem in the first pictures was a bit too short. In my fit there were a few spacers, but the saddle to bar -drop was quite moderate.

Ah, that makes sense. Something about the appearance made me think it was a little fancier than a hybrid, but I've definitely seen some great hybrid conversions and this is one of them! It looks like you have pretty awesome tire clearance for this purpose!
