Your bike is French threaded (35 mm diameter, 1.0 mm thread pitch, both sides right hand threaded). The Velo Orange bb Iowegian referenced is one of the very few made in French threading and should work well. Phil Wood makes French threaded cups for their bottom brackets but they are very expensive.
