That's a nice looking vintage Turner. I loved their CNC'd BB/shock mount. As for the reliance on modern MTB design to ride trails, it's a bit of a misnomer IMO. When I first moved to BC 20 years ago I had my Turner (which was state of the art back then) and the shop mechanic I worked with that took me riding and showed me around the west coast trails eschewed modern technology. I was amazed at the time how he rode everything on a fully rigid 26" with V-brakes! He would shred all the squamish classics - powerhouse plunge, entrails, upper powersmart etc. It was his riding that influenced me to put away the Turner and ride my rigid Surly instead (mind you it was one of the first 29ers). kudos to your friend for rocking the 26 old geo!
