is it possible to get a Mavic 316 crown race from anywhere ? Or is there one of another male which would be compatible?
Any help appreciated - I don’t want to buy another headset

Not sure if this is helpful, but this Ebay seller is letting some NOS 316 spares go. Looks like a complete bottom cup complete with crown race, but best to check.

I nearly bought them myself but postage seems a killer...

Thanks for the link
Postage is a killer - there’s also a NOS new silver 316 one for sale in the USA for £47 plus postage -
But don’t want spend that as mine is in nice condition - my crown race was wedged onto my Pace fork - I sold the fork and asked the buyer to send the crown race back when I sold it - the smart Alec sent it to a complete different address and that’s that.

Think a bike shop down the road has a complete NOS headset still on the shelf, does it matter if it's black or silver? I can pop by in the next week and have a gander if you are interested? 1.1/8 yeah? If memory serves me right, they are just loose caged ballbearings yeah? If so I would assume most lower races for similar would fit, its just the seal integrating with the lower cup you need to worry about, unless you ride in dry or service often...

Appreciate it - if you could take a look whenever you have time and pass by the shop
