Thanks bikemig, I actually have the BB off now ... EXCEPT for the fixed cup. I have now broken two 1/2 bolts trying to remove it using Sheldon Brown's suggested method for BB removal. Really wondering if it's Swiss but I can feel the threads from the other side and I'm 99.9% certain they are right-hand threads. I'm only second guessing what seems obvious because it's just not budging. I soaked it in PB blaster for a week and then broke the 2nd 1/2 bolt.

Going to take it to a bike shop to see if they can remove it I guess.
