Hello people my name is jake, this is my first post and I just registered. My friend petre showed me this forum and it looks like a good place for me to talk about my interest in retro bikes.
This is my first attempt at a restoration, I have built up bikes before from scratch but never tried this. Here is a picture:

I have been fixing up this old gent and at this point everything is going absolutely fine with the project, except for the headset and the saddle (though finding a new saddle wont be hard). The problem is that the headset cups are rather worn. This isnt something that would stop me riding it once the rest is fixed but if I could fix it it would be great, the only thing is I cant seem to find a source of replacements. I found BB parts and hub spares available on ebay easily but this is proving more difficult.
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a good source, or if someone has one about.
I will upload pictures of the project as I go. Just waiting for the paint on the frame to dry at the moment
