The bike pictured in post #11 is not the bike in question. If my eyes aren't deceiving me, neither the brake bridge or the fork crown are drilled. The geometry of the frame looks pretty steep, so I would be inclined to believe it is indeed a track frame and not a road frame retrofitted with rear fork ends. If this is case, I would be pretty surprised if the frame is constructed of high tensile steel.
