WTB: Swiss BB cups.

Hey all,

I'm slowly gathering pieces for a Motobecane Grand Jubile. Hoping someone has a swiss BB cup set that can part with..

Cheers.

I have a TA bottom bracket with (I believe) Swiss cups. The fixed cup is marked "FG" and has single ring, so that should be Swiss per this thread.

It came from a Motobecane mountain bike.

should be easy to determine by comparing the "slant" of the threading when both cups are next to each other: a FR set will look identical (both RH thread) but the Swiss cups will ook mirror-image (one RH and one LH)
