Updating BB and cranks on Homegrown

I may pick up a NOS Homegrown. Question: 1998-1999 frame will it accept a more modern, outboard bearing Shimano style BB?  I'm not a mechanic, but I'm learning more about bike tech. IT looks like the frames BB had threads on drive and non-drive side - 

Hope I'm not sounding too naive! thank you for any help.
