Frame ID request: Wishbone stays, odd mix

G'morning C&V-

Trying to figure out just what this thing is.

Seat custer is interesting, not sure if it was a low-end machine originally.

The wishbone seat stay is what grabbed my interest for the most part.

Other components are almost certainly non-original.

Any guesses at the make or model?

Thx.

Replacement fork seems "offset"; especially evident when first photo is enlarged.
Be wary of frame damage.

Also, those rear seatstays going into a single tube screams "I'm from about 1990 and I'm low-end".

Your replies to C&V appraisal threads usually scream "I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I'm gonna ****post anyway".

Pardon me if this is piling on, but my top of the (non-carbon) line, 1991 offering from Specialized, a fully Tange Prestige Allez Transition Pro with wishbone stays, Dura Ace save for the Campagnolo headset, takes exception to your gross generalization, sir.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

With the exception of the mono-stay reinforcement, I don't see any signs of lug collars, so it would appear to be TIG welded and therefore likely 1990+. Given the apparent era and features like bosses for two bottles and recessed brake mounts and no fender eyelets, I seriously doubt we're not looking at entry level and hi-tensile. At worst, it's probably a seamed, butted, CrMo frame. Components could be OEM but it's hard to say. There were lots of mid-range models from major brands with mono-stays around this time.
