What diameter is the seattube? Is the bottom bracket/fork English or Italian threaded? From the photos, I'd say any number of local Aussie builders is a safe bet.

If it's not 144bcd, it's not a track crank. Campagnolo has only used 151 and 144bcd for their Pista crank arms. 144bcd being the one used during the C-Record era.
