I would suspect the HS would 1" JIS. the BB is a slightly different story, while I again would suspect the shell is english 1.37x24 the spindle will depend on what crankset you intend to use.
spindles come in sizes from a scant 102mm for the newest Campi cranks to 122+ for older road and ATB triples.

"use the force, luke!"
