A friend gave me a 2002 Bianchi SL Lite Alloy that hadn't been ridden in a while and needed some work. The drive-side cup of the bottom bracket was very hard to remove from the frame. I had to use a 4ft long pipe to get enough torque to get it out.
The threads look like they may be destroyed. It looks like the metal from the shell and the metal from the cup fused together or something? Is that what happened?
The cup says "Campagnolo 1.370 x 24 TPI". Is the frame destroyed or is there anything a shop can do to salvage it?
