Very strange... Was the oval cutout custom-made? Maybe the entire front end of this frame is custom, I've never seen integrated gyro tabs, either.

Maybe post a few more images?

Integrated, or "welded gyro tabs" as they were called, were quite common years ago.





More pics of any distinguishing features, and post the serial number too. might be something there to go by.

Macniel did the welded tabs for a bit, but so did everyone else.

Press in headset cups tells me mid 00's or a bit older.

I remember welded tabs like that. My early 2000's Blammo has similar tabs.

It had a DK sticker on it. I am not so sure it is a DK though. Also, does anyone know any brands with the Oval Cutout?

Nope. Eastern did 2 slits and eventually I think their "EB" logo.

Not many brands did cutouts, and not back that far that I recall. I would bet it was done by an owner of that frame.

Well the bike itself was in bad condition, paint wise. I am restoring it. It is a very light frame. If the owner did the cutout he is very talented. It is very well done.
