Product Description

This is a show bike restoration grade top level French headset from the 1950's into the mid 1960's.  It's identified as the first gen model via the two pin top nut (well, technically 4 but they call it 2) whereas later Competition models had standard hex/octagonal top nuts.  It's differentiated between the lower level P3 from the same era via the V Type bearing/cup interface which create more bearing-cup contact for a smoother and longer wearing headset.


Excellent to near mint very lightly used shape.  No real physical wear from use or tool marks.  The flanges show only a bit of markings.   Top nut, spacers, top/crown races are quite clean.  Bottom cup has slight beginnings of pitting.  The knurled sides have a few dark spots.  Nice enough for most period correct show bikes
