Hi, i've got a 1998 Raleigh DHO that i'm far too attached too. Only problem being the head tube became flared some years back, due to me havign to race the MEgavalanche with a dodgy headset (who'd have thought it would be nigh on impossible to get headset on race day in Alpe d'Huez...anyway i digress).

To get the old girl repaired, does anyone have a ball park cost for removal/repair of an Reynolds 853 headtube?

To replace a full seat tube is about £90 from the usual suspects, so I'd assume less than that?

Ah, yes Dave Yates, couldn't remember their name!

looks like from £110, with respray on top could be a pretty penny for the old girl...
