EDIT: I'm all set! WTB: Italian Octalink V1 BB (105, Ultegra, Dura Ace)

Edit: I'm all set. Thanks everyone! I got about 6 offers for BB's. Everyone is incredible here!

Hello,

Looking to find an Italian Octalink 109.5 mm BB. The BB will say "70" not "68" on it below the part # to know quickly that it is Italian.

The following models would work:

- 105 5500
- Ultegra 6500
- Dura Ace 7700

I'm trying to get a beater track bike up and running, so NOS/collector pricing is not ideal. I'm willing to work with anything used but smooth.

Thanks!

I would think they are super common, bordering on being a nuisance, if eBay is any indicator.

There is a whole era of 90's/early 00's Italian bikes that sported Shimano.

I’ll be pulling the 6500 Octalink BB out of my Merckx in the next week or so. Has around 2k miles on it. Shoot me a PM if that interests you.
