Frame was shipped well packaged. Took her out and was emidiately impressed. Its chunky chainstays are great. Just a quick picture.

I will order a shimano BSA 68mm bottom bracket.

I need a threadless headset 1 inch. And some advice for a 1 inch fork. I think I also need a stem that fits that 1 inch fork, right, as my normal stems aren't for 1 inch forks, right?

One other beautiful option is this stemImage

Limits this choice the possibilities for handlebars?

Or you can use a shin for the 1” steerer so you can use standard stem?

Sure you can. Modern Colnago Masters' have been using them for years.

The original fork looks just fine!
If you decide to keep the original fork but want to run a threadless stem and modern bars, I can share with you the threadless conversion headset I designed and installed on my 1984 Trek 660 for that purpose.

What did you design?

This conversion headset:

Also available in silver...which when installed with a threaded fork and cut down to the bare minimum, looks like this:

The conversion looks best with fat frame tubes like this bike where the quill portion has not been cut at all (50mm of spacers under the stem):

Wow. That would indeed be a good option. I'm trying to figure out my fit and will decide after that.

Ordered!

No WW!

Tried to put the rear break below the BB and succeeded. Looks better as well.

Spent a couple of hours driling the frame and fishing cables. Still not done. Trying to hide the di2 battery inside the frame somehow. First idea was to drill a hole big enough in the cavity of the rear wheel - just like the Cervelo P5.
