Any Dave Russell experts out there?

Picked this up today and was wondering if anyone could shed a bit of light on it. I've googled and got some basic Dave Russell info back, but couldn't find out much about the range of bikes he produced & whether this was a diamond or a lump of coal. Some of the parts seem a bit incongruous, so may not be original but the bulk of it does seem to be. Any info gratefully received...

No expert and next to no Dave Russell knowledge but far more on the diamond side IMO, fork a bit curious, maybe not original but no matter.

I would get on with a full strip down, scrub, clean and polish, this is cool.
