Bottom bracket help!

I've got an early 80's ride with a Galaxy 2 head-badge(I've been told it's a Dawes) that I am in the process of converting, and I need some crank/bb help. It has totally worthless pot metal cottered cranks on it and I'm looking for the proper type of replacement bb and crank set, but I'm a total noob with little cash flow. Any suggestions or info wold be massively appreciated.

Vuelta Track/Fixie Cranks are designed to work with 107 - 108mm BB Spindle in most applications.

Nope, need something with a shorter spindle length with is the 110 of that equation. Most FG cranks will require 103 or 107, you just have to find the cranks you want and then find out which spindle length is best.
