I have just got hold of some c record cranks from around 1990. I only needed a left hand crank arm for some chorus cranks but couldn't get hold of one, and ended up with these instead :) So the question is what bottom bracket do I need. I've trawled the net, but all the info I get points to 111mm JIS taper. Does anyone know where I can get one from. Cheers, Stu

One of these Centaur bottom brackets would probably do if you are not fussed about it being in black and getting the year right. : http://www.chickencycles.co.uk/index.php?cat=7&sub=107&ord=2

It will be ISO taper not JIS.

Cheers for the info. So any symetrical 111mm ISO will fit then?

BSA or Italian thread?

I have a non-triple 111mm cartridge Record BB going spare.

I'm still trying to find out exactly which bottom bracket I need for the c record cranks. Do I need a symetrical or asymetrical BB? Do the tapers need to stick out the same on both sides? I've seen a few Campagnolo BB stated as track bottom brackets, is there any difference? What do you guys use for C Record. Many thanks.

You need a symmetrical one with ISO taper.

This makes you life quite easy as any Campag cartridge BB for double chainsets other than for later Chorus/Record and for triples will work fine.
