Where to find a replacement for this bottom bracket?
I'd like to replace the bottom bracket on my bike, it's a cup and cone style bracket from the 70s (the ends are spindled).
I'm looking to replace it with a bottom bracket that has square-tapered ends. Any ideas as to where I should be looking (other than eBay)?

you need to know what kind of frame you have first before you can buy a bottom bracket.
It's a Japanese Vista steel lugged road frame. Originally a 10sp I believe, that's all the information I have on it.
It's probably English threading, meaning any generic Shimano UN-*7 cartridge BB will work fine.
