What's this? Rear swingarm looks fairly well made, front section looks fairly familiar?
Mavic rims, STX rear mech from the looks of it. And are those forks Marzocchi Bombers ? :?

Maybe, it does have a few similarities to a Univega 900DS. Rear swingarm looks different though.

Perhaps the "Pro" version with alloy swing arm?

Wow, that really is horrific. Not even Trek would make something that nasty, try as they might. Even better is that the owner has the great idea to add solid tyres to really put sprinkles on the turd.

I particularly like that the rear mudguard mount is a safety feature preventing the seatpost from being lowered into the shock although if it did I doubt it would impact the ride of that abortion

i think, at best, it's one of the "shop branded" FS frames. At worst, it's an outright BSO with some good bits

I don't think the tyres are solid, to be fair. They have valves.
