I'm far from an expert but I would guess at an '89 Avalanche.

buy now worry later
blizzard/avalanche/ wedge and t-bolt all used that style... but on my poor dim small cracked phone screen the headtube when zoomed with pixelation seems to have a fat smooth welding...

Top end so probably Wedge, they did use a roller for the front mech (though on other side normally I think)
Roll-Ahead forks....
Though wishbone is the odd one.
as 1990 Wedge went for the wonderful Elavated & Twin downtube.
Wedges and Blizzard Slopes had fastback says from all the ones I've seen.
Possibly a Custom (T-Bolt/Wedge) build then

Avalanche was Toyo built so had Toyo style rear stay fixings.

It does look teeny tiny, maybe the rear end is different to normal to accommodate this?
