conical seat stay tops are suggestive of an Asian origin

head looks as though it may be bulge-formed; not eno' rez in image to tell one way or the other...

cantilevers look like they may be a model of CLB, but those horrible soft Formosan levers look out of place

note that front wheel constructed with a five-piece steel hollow axle front hub paired with an alloy rim

cycle is certainly sending some mixed messages...
