Looks like a nasty piece of rubbish. Tell you what, I'll do you a favour and give you a tenner for it.

120mm is 10 speed and later track spacing. Were track bikes always made without holes for brakes?

Raleigh used lugs like that (Prugnat?) a lot. I'm not sure if that is exactly them.
And they used that Sakae CR crank from the early/mid 1980s, I have a Raleigh branded one.

Was there ever a time when bikes had internal brake cabling, but no other brazeons? That might be an add-on.

Bikes often didn't have any brazeons for gears before about the early 1980s. Even the derailleur hanger was often separate earlier.

Its probably just a custom made frame for riding on the road.
Numerous people rode fixed gear on the roads back in the day because it was good training etc etc, so bikes were made with rear brake mounts.
I have a 90's mass produced track frame that has brake mounts, so its not uncommon.

After studying the attached photos, I believe that this is possibly a bicycle frame.

Next question.
