Does anyone have a specific supplier for the bb bearings for a Pace RC100? I've got the number 61922 but they're metric whilst i'd imagine the Bullseye axle isn't.

There are definitely others better placed to comment than I, but I made a note quite some time ago of a firm called Calda-Morley who can make custom sizes. I haven't bought from them, but perhaps that's a start.

I don't know what the original imperial spindle diameter is, but I had read somewhere (possibly on here) that one solution was to have the spindle re-machined to an exact 22mm dia. which would allow you to fit metric bearings. Mine appears to measure 22mm, and I have some 22x39x9 bearings - but I have yet to try and fit them. It may be worth measuring your spindle diameter to see what you have.

I have some of those bearings in stock, left over from a project.
Decent well-sealed NTN 619/22-2RS = 22 x 39 x 9mm.
They weren't cheap and shipped from the US, so £18 each + a few quid postage?

AFAIK thankfully all the Bullseye axles used on Pace frames were machined down to 22mm from 22.2 (7/8").
