Thanks all.

Right now plan A is a Phil Wood bottom bracket. I have one on the way and if I can get the cups to tighten down decently enough, I'll use some form of thread compound as I think a Phil Wood will last longer than the amount of miles I'll put on this bike (along with all my others) for the rest of my life. If it doesn't work I have a couple of bikes that I'll be just as happy to use it on. Plan B will be to figure a way to use the old Record cups. The downside of the cup and cone bracket is that they will require occasional removal for maintenance and I think these bottom bracket threads just need to be left alone.

Meanwhile, still looking for a Precisa or Colnago Flash fork for this baby!
