Help! Trying to identify this bike

Picked up this vintage frame upon cleaning found some characteristics that are making it difficult for me to figure out the frame. It has Mongoose, Murray and Schwinn characteristics the cranks with Chain rings looks exactly like 1974 Schwinn 10 speed when I tore it down it had heavy duty steel rims, Schwinn bearings and vintage Suntour components. The first image looks Mongoose 2nd Murray but with better welds the forks look like Schwinn bmx style from the 70s. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

I haven't an idea but it looks sick.

@JayP33 here are a couple of similar frames: both Murrays from the 80s, but lacking your frame's wishbone stays design. Possibly your frame is a later variant, or another brand's knock-off of an early Murray. They may have still been manufactured in the same factory, just different badging. One is a ten speed, the other a single speed. The gusset on the front is eerily similar, but still different. Do you have the serial number? If the same format it might be a clue as to them being of the same brand and/or manufacturer. Hope this helps a little.

Did you find out @JayP33 ?
It sure reminds me of my old Murray.
