Well i'm stunned my chain line is all over the place and because i feel i dont need instruction manuals i missed the crucial part which told me the correct axle to use.

it is going to be a nightmare finding the 120 to 125 length i need. i need charity guy's anyone got a taper 120 to 125 axle

thanks andy

Threw a 122.5 one in the bin yesterday!! Just had a quick rummage, but cant see it.
Too early for dealing with mouldy stuff, but I'll don the rubber gloves and have a proper look later :wink:

This is a proper retro externally threaded one I'm afraid.
I have all of the bb, appart from one ball race, so let me know if you want the whole lot.
Not going digging around in the bin if it's no good :wink:
