I beleive (not sure) that the trough was only on Italian BBs to take up the 2mm wider shell spacing as BSC is 68 vice italian which is 70mm??

Those with an interst in 60's and 70's Campy stuff might want to check out Ebay auction #1176856855. Does anyone have information regarding this unusual NR bottom bracket? It has thick-walled cups with the rifled spindle passage, like a normal NR, but the exterior surface of the fixed cup is flat, like a Record, GS, SR, etc. NR BBs normally have a "trough" machined on the face of the fixed cup. I assume this is a very early NR. Does anyone know when / how long they were made this way? Are all BB's like this pre-CPSC and for 120mm drivetrains? This is not the first NR that I've seen using this fixed cup, but I've only seen a couple of others.

Oh, yeah: no relation to seller, bidders, &c.
