Raleigh Project one, The Headset
The Raleigh Headset is a thing of beauty. Simple and elegant, once adjusted it never seems to come loose. Made from top quality steel, I never had one go bad. Taking the time to remove the parts and clean and polish the bright parts is worth the time. Removing the cups can be done with a drift pin from the inside of the head tube. It does not require special tools. Once out, polish again with a damp cloth and the polishing compound.
The Head Tube of the Bicycle with the Head Badge always calls attention and with a clean and polished headset the Raleigh will look its best!
