Implications? Swiss threaded just means the bike is married to old style cup, bearings, and cone spindle. Ne easy way to upgrade to modern cartridge bearings and such, though I think some guy named Woods makes an expensive Swiss threaded cartridge (seem to remember reading that somewhere). The fixed cup (non-drive side) is reverse threaded on Swiss threaded bottom brackets. So both bottom bracket cups loosen by rotating towards the front tire and tighten by rotating towards the rear tire. Dollars to donuts your bottom bracket is Swiss threaded.
