To be clear, not french threaded. This is for my Eroica bike, otherwise I'd just slap a sealed unit in and be done with it. Details, details.

There was probably one in the BOC last time it went around these parts, but I didn't think to look.

I just put my Stronglight 99 BIS on a Suntour sealed BB that came with a Sugino AT. Gives me clearance at the chainstays.

Of course you don't.

I just want to increase my chances of finishing the damn thing.

BTW, Thanks to @nlerner for digging through his enormous pile of junk and bits and finding the exact and correct match.

@gugie is trying to set this one up as it would have come out of Worksop, so he’s adding blobs of brazing material here and there and filing in a few voids in the lug junctures.

is he installing the plastic Simplex derailleur too? That would be an act of true bravery!

I loved my Gran Sport, but a lot of the parts were just .... "sub-optimal".

I was really tempted to put a Gran Sport decal on the right side of the top tube, Grand Sports on the left, and Granny Gear on the chainstays.

Damn, I shoulda done that...

Steve, my goal is to finish Eroica. MTBF on those derailleurs is 25 miles, I believe.
