I have a 83 GT pro series and I want to get it rolling nice again. I shouldn't have any issues on using modern parts should i? The BB is the same size right?

I want to change my forks/stem/headset and that is where i'm really confused. I believe it is a 1" threaded setup. Is there anywhere i can even get these now, or is there a 1" threadless setup that isn't rediculously expensive? Going to pick up some cranks soon too, any ideas of something strong that won't look out of place on an old school?

You can't convert a 1" headset to a 1 1/8". Just isn't possible or worth while. In my opinion, putting any modern parts on a classic bike just looks tacky. If you really want to ride it, just build it up with period correct parts. Adding new school parts isn't going to make the bike any better than it would be with older pieces. I don't race, but an '83 pro series frame is more a classic and I myself wouldn't want to screw it up.
