any new frames out there with italian bb's?

im looking for a new track frame, but i would like to use some of the parts i already have, including a da italian threaded bb and an fsa orbitx headset. im wondering if there are any manufacturers making frames with italian bb's anymore? obviously its not a deal breaker but it would be nice.
thanks in advance

Ummm... it's a BB A new one costs, what, $15-30 for a cheap one, $100 for a high-zoot one? Plus English BBs are a technically superior design since they won't loosen through precession. Flip the Italian BB on ebay, and get a standard frame. You'll be glad you did when you see how many fewer models of BB are available with Italian threading.

Yeah, I wouldn't limit my frame choices just to use my old Italian thread BB. Pick a frame you love, don't worry about the BB.
