Subject: [CR]BB cups for a Campy cottered spindle

The work continues on my '64 Legnano Gran Premio (ever so slowly). This project bike came with a Magistroni crankset and a cottered BB spindle (with a C in the centre, I'm assuming this is Campy, anyone know for sure?). From the measures I've taken of the spindle I'm guessing that old style thick BB cups that would have been standard on the cotterless BB would do the job here as well. I'm hoping that Campagnolo was being efficient (cost effective) and would have just changed the spindle and kept the rest (bearings and cups) the same. Anyone have any experience with these?
