Bottom Bracket for Waterford

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bottom Bracket for Waterford

I have a 1995 Waterford, and I'm planning to upgrade with a completely new groupset -- Ultegra R8000 11 speed, including bottom bracket and crankset. I've replaced all the other components on this or other bikes in the past but never worked on the bottom bracket -- anything I should know to be sure that this will be compatible with a 1995 steel frame, besides the English threading on the bottom bracket? Or other tips I should be aware of before I order the groupset? Thanks, John

It's standard English 68mm wide 1.37" x 24tpi. Nothing special at all about building, they're great bikes.
