    Odd bottom bracket size

    I finally built up my track bike over the weekend, recycling many parts from my Motobecane conversion.

    I needed to get a new bottom bracket though, and at the LBS, dude tells me that its a 65mm?? We fit a 68mm in there, kinda sticking out on the left side, so its working now.

    But has anyone heard of a 65mm bottom bracket?? I'd like to use the right size if I can, but I can't find any info...

    The problem is that it's some obscure track/club bike from Australia, apparently...
