New to MTB and new bike to me

I have a couple older steel road bikes but never have ridden mountain bikes at all. Over the last couple months I decided I wanted to try it and last week I found this bike for sale and bought it. What do you think?

1994 Schwinn High Timber SS, highly modded as compared to new. Original Cr-Mo frame of course with Suspension fork replaced with Ritchey Tange Prestige; Moots Ti handlebar with Specialized Ti stem; XTR crank, BB, 8 speed cassette, FD, front hub; SRAM 9.0 RD and shifters, Mavic rims, Pauls brake levers, Time Titan carbon pedals. Only weighs about 24 lbs.

I also have an older Manitou FS fork that I have rebuild kit for - thinking of trying that out as well.

Nice, not bad at all to get going on.
Appreciate the old bikes more than the new.

Is this the mountain bike rut right now? Lotta MTBs with antlers last couple weeks.

Just kidding - - enjoy!
