..did Chris King make one?

Although the more pertinent question would be..

..does anyone have one for sale in 1 1/8"?

Failing that..

..does anyone have a Purple/3DV Violet Headset for sale in 1 1/8"? :wink:

Is it an Aheadset? Sorry shoulda been more specific [although given that you're not selling, doesn't make that much difference!]..

Might have to go the Pink King instead and donate to charity on the way.. 8)

aheadset or threaded, never a big deal on king headsets as the top bearing cap is interchangeable between ahead & threaded (yours in the post soon jez)

are king donating more than $1per headset on the pink 1s?

not retro but Hope used to do their headset in purple. No longer available but if you want one it would be worth giving Hope a ring to see if they have any old stock, I got a purple seat collar that way.
