phil wood makes a (kinda pricey) french-threaded bottom bracket.
otherwise, go to your shop and get french-threaded cups, and go cup & cone.

i might go with the phil wood but they r kinda pricey thanks
don't waste phil money on a jeunet. repack it, find something used and cheap or get a new frame.
