The mounting hardware folks are talking about are generally called P-clamps, and the rubber-coated stainless steel ones can be found at most good hardware stores pretty cheap if your LBS can't find them. They come in several diameters, so make sure you get one sized appropriately to your seat stays.
But I echo the above with my BWAHHH!! Who would even consider putting 50 lbs on a track frame? I'm certainly not one for the uber-specialization of bikes (I love flying by the fully-suspended folks while offroading on my road bikes) but a true track bike is already incredibly specialized for a very non-touring use. The bottom bracket is too high for stability, the angles are too steep for comfort, the tubes are too weak for heavy loads, clearance is too tight for comfy tires or broken spokes, etc, etc, etc.
