Dummy Headset

July 14, 2015 § Leave a comment

Got an interesting dummy headset from a friend of mine to duplicate.  My intention is to use aluminum (his is steel) but I did start one from steel because I am still waiting for aluminum to show up.

The dummy headset will allow elegant and simple display of frameset.  No more zip ties or ugly rubber grommets. May also aid in frame construction and prep.  Will mock standard stack heights.

More pics soon as I complete the set screw and facing.

Drilling out rough size for 1″ steerer tube.  Will use boring bar to finish to size.
