1977 DG 16 Steve Skibel Replica

What ya see is what I got. Euro BB, integrated seat post is broken off. This frame is literally light as a feather. Wish me luck finding parts!!
Update, scored a Cooks Bros. BB bearings, and a Tange head seat! Tange Redline stickered forks. MCS stem. I was born in 1977 so this is personal project!

After a little more research, and finally test fitting some wheels, it turns out it's a 20 inch. I feel dumb. hmm

The hole in the Gusset is that original,  I have several dg 20" and one I recently got has that same hole in the Gusset,  any idea, brake cable? Non factory hole?

Agree.  I've seen similar holes used as a cable housing stop for center pull brakes that were mounted underneath.  As an example, there are a couple early Robinson's set up this way on this site.
