I checked my 1973 (or maybe it's 1972) and my 1975 chrome Paramount P-13's. Neither has any fender eyelets. So that is one definite difference between the P-15 and P-13, at least in that era.

BTW, neither of these bikes (nor I think a third waiting to be sorted out) has the special Schwinn version of the Reynolds 531 decal, as shown on the CR site:

Anyone know what year Schwinn actually used the special 531 decal?

They are one of the features that differentiate the 70s touring from racing models, i.e. touring frames have 'em and the P-13's don't. I believe earlier road racing models, i.e. late 60s, did have the Campy eyelets. Some of the "transitional" P-13's have them as well. As for the geometry, in the late 60's, you could order a made-to-measure frame at extra cost. I was speaking of the regular-priced, non-special order frames, in which case I believe that if you ordered a touring or racing frame, you were getting the same thing frame-wise: geometry, braze-on cable guides, fork rake. Dale's frame is surely a custom order.
