Picked this up today and know very little. Looks to be mostly original with the exception of the rear disc brake.

Can anyone tell me anything about this bike?

That thing is awesome! It is a Mongoose Girder!
Dan at Ichi Bike in Des Moines built a couple of those muscle bike style with electric hub motors a few years ago. They were super cool.
Thats a great frame bud! :)
I dig it!

Aw man! The good thing is that I only paid 20 bucks for it. Figure I can get at least 30 for the tires, rims and rear disc brake.

I ended up selling it to a friend for his kid. Don’t like to ship bikes because it is a pain. Made a couple of dollars

I am not that old, so I had one when I was younger. 2012 Mongoose Girder. I got it used at a bike shop for $30 and I thought it was the best thing ever. It was the only affordable kids bike with disk brakes at the time.

My old one.
Schwinn grips
WTB seat
Knobbier rear tire
I also found old, broken bike lights and attached them to the bike.
