Any ideas on who this frame builder was?

Probably 531 DB Cyclo front dropouts Round blades Cast "twin plate" type crown Nervex pro lugs Cast BB, fairly massive with some porosity looks like a sand casting Semi-wrapover set stay caps with top plate extending over tube (ala LeJeune) British threads rear brake bridge reinforcements Campagnolo rear ends with scalloped tube treatment Decent finish and brazing but a pinhole here and there Shifter, under BB, dual WB (don't match), brake cable and chain hanger brazeons perhaps added later along with a US type repaint.

I could send some more pictures if someone needs additional detail.
