If you are set on "upgrading" this bike, the first thing to do is to completely strip the frame of all of its components, including the fork and remove all of the old, dirty and/or dried up grease. When all is clean, reassemble the headset and fork with new grease. Then check the frame to make sure it is aligned properly with the proper drop-out spacing.

Once you get the frame set-up properly, you can then build it up with your new components. Personally, I would clean, re-lube and adjust all of the original components and re-use them.
