Here's my one day klunker. I'm really proud of this one, it's my lowest geared bike I've built so far.

It's a Schwinn frame of unknown name or model, prewar dogleg crank, 7 speed rear cassette, 3 speed front sprocket

  a Walmart suspension fork that miraculously fit the steer tube

Got some good stopping power finally

Cool old mongoose bmx stem

rides pretty good, pretty soon I might disassemble it and get it blasted and powdercoated.

No actual trails yet, just for a quick bash out in my gravel pit. It handles very nicely, and the fork was kind of stuff when I first put it on the bike, but it's loosening up slowly and I actually like the amount of travel I get from it. Also, I'm going to get some better dirt tires for it, the ones it's wearing now are too smooth for my local mtb trails.

is that a vintage early bmx stem/Mongoose??
Yes it is, I picked it out of the local dump off of a toasted 80's mongoose that was on it's way out on a load of scrap, I just thought it looked cool.
