Yes a standard 1" headset would fit the Richmond a treat.
Now I am going to get hung by the purists for my next piece of advice but what the hey
To remove the cups from the frame I use a flat headed punch, but an old fat head screwdriver with a long shaft (Oooer missus
) will do the job. Just slide it gently down the inside face of the headtube until it contacts the top of the inside collar of the cup, and give it a good sharp tap, with a good size hammer repeat on either side until it pops out
As to the replacement headset depends on what you want and like Tange Passage headsets on Ebay look like great value, BBB do an alloy, sealed bearing one for a reasonable price, and I bought a nice Miche one, aero style and needle bearings for £23 from Wiggle last year
I want to live in a better world, one where chickens can cross the road without their motives being questioned !!
