help with parts ID (and ballpark values)

hey gang, i just picked up a vintage track bike and theres a lot of good and or unidentifiable components going on here....if anyone wants to jump in with any ideas and approx. values, i'd be forever grateful.

frame: this is a track frame with nervex lugs. no headbadge (theres a sticker on it now), crappy repaint job. from what i've researched, nervex lugs didnt come with low end bikes.

cranks: this is the big mystery. they look like old campy or stronglights from the 60's, but there is no identification. odd bolt location.

fork: olmo road fork (rake is too much for a track fork) repainted and has the smaller sized dropout holes.

headset: "campagnolo brev italy" thats all that appears on top and bottom sets.

wheelset: Saturae HC20 700c - 36 spoke....anyone familiar with these?

Crankset looks like a spider off of a Lambert/Viscount w/ an old Stronglight chainring.
