It will really affect what components I go with on the bike build.

...there are a lot of old track frames bouncing around. The more expensive ones tend to be that way because of either the maker of it, or if it has some historical value. If it's been around long enough to have lost badging and repainted, most of them are similar enough to defy identification. But when you have ten posts and can link some photos, there are people who can somewhat narrow down this information, not so much by removable components like the headset, but by the joining used in frame construction.
