Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking

the cycle gods have shined on me again this week, today i rescued an old track frame( assuming track as no holes for brakes,rather a light construction)
the headstem is rather distinctive.. aside from the integrated bearing housings, the ornate front features a letter that is a ornate letter E OR a Gaelic looking letter M on its side.
my LBS suggested a mercator?
hints of the blue paint with white pinstripes and diamond patterns down the fork.
im sure Ive seen a pic of a very ,very similar frame somewhere on BNS but I thought Id ask the experts first
is it like this?
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

First up, head over to photobucket or another image hosting site and set up an account, once you've done that you can upload your pics.
this is where our problems begin. all to do with upgrading our sevice etc. weve had problems even since.
i pretty sure its a super elliott after managing to get onto a site that had a history ofthe brand.
rather pleased with the find.
. i did email some pics out to clydesdale scot who PM'd me but I dont think they got to him
no sign of them, can you try again?
or PM me your email address
and here are landyacht03's photos for a frame identification
Mario had this selection of Super Elliotts here
and there are more variations at his AussieVelos site
PM has been sent to Mario for help here
landyacht03 is there a serial number?
Is there anything on the down-tube, it looks like some markings are on there? any of it readable? makers, name of anything etc.
I have been collecting Super Elliott serials for a while to see if there is a pattern among all these frames and bikes and could see if it fits in soemwhere.
The serial is mainly located around the seat collar or under the Bottom Bracket,
I would say it is a 1930's era, however i havent seen an E in that style but thats not to say it isnt a Super Elliott,
Love to see more images
the seat post and stem wont be coming out anytime soon,sorry.
the frame was buried in a pile of temite eaten OOOOLD firewood in a collapsed shed. after my luck with finding a swansea 5 swan ive asked all my bobcat mates to keep their eyes peeled . i went back to the frame tonight and there on the bottom bracket on the curved front is a serial number. the first symbol is partial due to the curve but I reckon it would have to be a capital E?followed by distinct 34672.
I dont know anything about the history as its an empty house thats falling down , dont even know who might have lived there(boulder ,WA)
original colour would have been a royal blue with white finelining ad white patterning on the fork
