Anybody know what headset size this takes? I have just bought a frame and established that the seatpost is 28.0, strange enough, but the headset is too big for an 1 1/8th quill stem that I have - is it therefore 1 1/4 or even 1.5"?? Here's a photo:

i dunno---i built up a 753 for my nephew a few years ago with spare stuff i had and dont remember it being anything odd--pretty sure i used a 1--1/8 headset tho i DID have a threadless steerer and stem--maybe quill/threaded is different???

I think given the age of the forks, it'll be 11/8.
Quill stems are 22.2mm for 1in fork, 25.4mm for 11/8 and i think 28.6mm for 11/4, but could be wrong about the last one :lol:
