Thanks for the greeting, Wes! I have not even attmpted to service the bottom brackets on any of mine, but two of them could use it. The bottom bracket on my original 1976 Lambert/Viscount is still just as smooth as when it was new! I may "pick your brain" about it if I get up the nerve to try that.
