The colour is superb! Lovely that you will have a matched pair.
Your workshop also looks like a good space to build in. 👌

...while we were desperately searching for 1 1/4" inches CHRIS KING headsets (silver), I had the idea to take simple retro XT headsets and polish them to high gloss! :) The shape of the cups were pretty nice and the looks of it is quite similar to the original Chris King.

I had several retro bottom brackets laying around. I decided to try out an older SHIMANO XT M737 and already mount the first part of the SHIMANO 7400-7410 group set. Works perfectly! We`ll leave it like that.

The steerer of the Sub One Fork on my brothers bike was a little more tricky. We wanted them both to be threaded, so I had to cut a 1 1/4" inches thread on it and shorten it a little. No problem with the right tools! <3 This worked out very smooth & fine. Both are now equally 1.25 inches and threaded:
