Looking for Columbus MAX BB shell

Anyone know where I can find a Columbus MAX BB shell? Tried the usual places (Ceeway, Nova, Bringheli) but no luck.

TIA

For the cast BB shells, did you shop the tube Outside diameters ? for the fit into the shell .

The only ones I've seen recently are being sold as part of a complete tubeset at $1,000 or more. I think you'll be very lucky to find one available by itself, and even then it'll be pricey.

If you've already got the tubeset, you might just use a generic BB shell and either fillet braze or TIG weld the tubes to it.

I have the tubeset, the other lugs and fork crown. Just missing the BB shell. Doing a fillet BB is my last resort as it would be nice to do it all lugged. Oh well....my search continues!
