I normally never follow such threads, but I accidentally opened this post. Something in the back of my dusty, cobweb filled brain said, I have one those rattling around in my parts box.

Indeed I do, it is a Dura-Ace headset, silver fork race, black bottom cup, silver top race, black top cup and black nut.

I am happy to sell it, but I have no clue what it is worth. And I do not want to use CR as an auction forum. So if you want it let me know what you will pay for if there is enough interest, I will stick on eBay.

If someone wants photos let me know.

Thank you,
