VooDoo HoooDoo

Hopefully someone can help!
I bought a second hand voodoo hoodoo and I was giving it a once over and decided to take off the BB, I noticed it was very stiff and rubbing when turned.
I spoke to halfords and they say it could be up to a month to order a new one and then spoke to a local bike shop and they said no one can get these BB anymore and said I would have to replace the whole crankset.
Does anyone know where I can get a Chin Haur CH52 73x127 ENC BB from?
Or does anyone have any parts lists to upgrade the crankset?
Thanks in advance

You can try to find a sealed bottom bracket in 73x127 on the UK EBay.

Not sure about the UK, but here in the US there are companies which sell bearings mostly to industrial maintenance folks. I would be surprised if they didn't use s standard size bearing for that BB. If you can get the bearing our without destroying it, go to one of those places and see if they can get you one. Or maybe an online bearing supply can sell you something from the markings on the bearing.

which crankset do you have? What's unique that it needs a special BB?
