Need a quick opinion about an Iron Horse Warrior Expert for a 270lb beginner...

I found one of these on Craigslist for tree fitty, just about what I can afford to spend right now for a beginner bike. I'm just wanting to know if it would hold me up under some light to medium trail riding (nothing extreme).

It has several aftermarket upgrades: Rock Shox J1 front fork, New chain, specialized chain guard, Bontrager seat, Shimano Acera Rear derailiuer, Specialized flat pedals, RavX Seat bag with frame mounted pump, Tektro I0 disc brakes.

Anyways, would I origami the poor thing or not? Thanks in advance. I look forward to contributing much to this forum. Just glad I found it!

PS: The original specs, pre mods:
