so i got this old steel frame - Motobecane - that i would like to build up. comes with fork, too.
nowadays it is kinda hard to find the original FRA threaded M35x1 mm bottom brackets. if one looks at the measurements, they are pretty similar to the ITA standard. the plan is to have the buiild take camapgnolo chorus ITA cups.
has anyone ever done a conversion? i'm aware the ITA uses a 70mm wide bottom bracket whereas the FRA is 68mm ... maybe a spacer (from XTR) on each side?
curious about any comments on this...
