Hey,

I'm looking for a headset to my new project, 95 kona cinder cone, P2, M900, high polish stem, handlebar, etc.

So I would need a not too expensive NOS retro or other modern, ahead, 1 1/8, and the most important, SILVER (high polish). :) Or red, but I like pure, simple things, so it would be a bit harsh.

I've found only few items, eg VP Components 69 or the red FSA Orbit MX or...

Please advice.

Thanks,
Norbert

Take a look at the Velo Orange Grand Cru, I have just fitted one to my Arthur Caygill.

Mine is polished silver with a light white graphic on it.

Campagnolo Record would be a good choice - even better finished than M900, looks similar (not all angular and chunky), strong and you can even regrease it through the ports on the side so no dismantling.
