First Build - Bianchi Pursuit 1980's

Hey guys,

This is my first build from the ground up and i've bitten off quite a bit

I bought a 1980's Bianchi Pursuit Track frame, and am in the process of gathering the components.

I have gotten a Campagnolo Pista Crankset but am stuck on what Bottom Bracket to get as there is so much info out there with sizing and everything but i'm not sure it's relevant to such an old frame?

I've measured it and it's 70mm, so Italian (duh!) - anything else I need to know? I will be looking for a period one (as the cranksets are as well)

Will any 70mm Italian Bottom Bracket fit on it?

Sorry if it's a bunch of stupid questions!

Cheers
