Morning all,

I am looking for an Arabesque crown race quite urgently. If you have anything suitable or know of a workable substitute give me a shout.

Thanks,

Richard

Thanks - have a look at the second set of pics - do you see pits in the races?

The one i am looking for is the 6200 -

but that one might work, providing there are no pits.

I had seen that but i really cannot justify the cost, the headset is going on an old Gazelle which is not NOS or close. I have an NOS 600 which i took off as it looked too new with the frame. The Arabesque looks right but the crown race is damaged. I might put the 600 back on and work on the Arabesque race until i get it fixed with engineering paste. I have all week to decide.

Thanks,

Richard

Thanks everyone for the offers, but I think i will use the previous headset and at least the bike will be rideable. This gives me time to consider my options.

Thanks to all who responded,

Richard
