What size ball bearings are used in British headsets as found in lightweight road bikes of the 1950s like Brampton, etc? Is it 5/32" ??

I know Raleigh has its difference in some cases, and I'm asking about headsets found in non-Raleigh road bikes like Bates, Macleans, Flying Scott, Rotrax, Hetchins, etc

I couldn't find this in the CR Archives. Thanks, Peter ============================================ Peter Brueggeman La Jolla California USA pbrueggeman(AT)ucsd.edu
