Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I have a Shimano UN-73 with my Superbe Pro cranks. Works perfectly, dead-on chainline. But mine is a double where I just use the 42t chainwheel. If yours is the track single chainset, it could be different.

sugino 75 is the same length and spindle taper. you can also use shimano un-xx but I dont think you will be able to get a perfect chainline. you need a 109mm symmetrical bottom bracket, the shimanos come in 107 and 110, but I believe the 110 is asymmetrical and puts the chainring in the same position as the 107. let me see if i have a superbe pro track bb... i'll pm you if i do.
