I searched for one for a good few weeks but seeing as they were going for £40 and upwards second hand got one brand new here for just over £50.

There's a guy selling one on lfgss but it's £40 and missing the part that sits on the forks. He wouldn't budge on the price. Can point you his way if you want.

Thanks for that. Was about to get one from CRC for £65 but that's a slightly better deal.

They do seem to get the money. One on ebay here > http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Shimano-Dura-Ace- ... 35a93c46eb I was going to bid on but it looks like it was taken off with an axe.

I assume you want that headset to complete a time-correct build ?
If not (and even if you really need it) I would steer well clear. The quality sucks. I have had 2 of them and the bearings lasted about one season. I think a CK headset would be just as time-correct :)

I've found the Shimano headset from this era to be good.

It is to complete a 'period' build though, yes. I am still looking for one as it goes. The shop which stocked them is out of stock now, despite me paying for one :roll:
