For my project Haiti bike:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=85423

The one I have is very rough. I will buy one of the Indian copies if need be, but I'm going to avoid doing it if I can because they are rubbish quality.

Failing that, a nice, old-fashioned steel fork, with a lot of rake and an English thread.

It is being done for charidee, so I can't spend a fortune on the NOS one you bought for 23p in a bike shop.

Anyone?

I dont have a complete headset, but theres a chance I have an upper (threaded) raleigh race and poss the locknut. Also i'm not sure of the bearing race quality. is it worth me having a looksee over the weekend? No promises, i'm going on half memory.

That would be perfect. I have some good English headsets that can donate their bottom races.
