also seems like 2nd hand bike suitable for his size (small frame bike) are like hens teeth - all a bit frustrating.

Probably the same as you have been looking at, but without the Label.
Others on the forum have used them, and they work.
With a bit of effort, and parts from the forum, could see your son on a
frame that will suit, and all under a few hundred bucks.
An intro into Track cycling, and a chance to see whether interests grow or fade.
Spend the big bucks later, when and if it works out it might be worth it.
My 2c worth.

As Brentono pointed out, the ebay VISP frames for $120 are great value. I know a few guys who use them and they're solid enough for their high BMI bodies on the track - I'm sure they'll be fine for a kids bike.
