Mystery 1972 Schwinn Paramount P13 frame

Got a little mystery I hope Paramount guys can figure out for me.

This 1972 frame seems to be a P13 road racing frame, but it has the cable housing stops for the rear brake cable welded to the top tube. All the P13s that I can find and remember don’t have the cable housing stops but use the 3 Campagnolo cable clamps on the top tube with full length housing.

The curve of the front fork is definitely P13, and there are no eyelets on the dropouts as expected with a P13. The chrome seems original as do the remaining decals.

Was this cable stop housing set up an optional configuration? I didn’t see that as an option on the order form. I’m getting ready to put this bike back together and I would like to know if it is legit.

Thanks, Jeff
