As long as the spindle is a suitable length, JIS tapered and the English threaded, you can use any cup-and-cone bb from SR, Tange, Suguino, Shimano, etc. In fact you can often mix-and-match cups and spindles since they all require the same 1/4" bearing balls.

An alternative is to buy a sealed cartridge bottom bracket such as a Shimano UN 24 or UN 54 or similar of the proper spindle length.
