Campagnolo Chorus 1" English threaded headset - used, $100.00

This 1" alloy headset has English threads, 1" x 24 tpi

We date this headset to about 1996. The bearings feel very smooth. There are some wrench-flat nicks, but in general, this headset is in excellent condition.

Perfect for the mid-90's restoration project.

Campagnolo Athena English-threaded road headset. Used, $40.00

The first run of Athena-level components was produced 1988-1999. Athena parts were positioned just below Chorus. Campagnolo began making Athena parts again in 2010. Our headset is from the earlier, vintage era.

There is some minor brinelling visible, but the bearings feel pretty good.

Campagnolo Nuovo Record #1039 English-threaded Strada headset. - $55.00

This 1" steel headset has English threads: 1" x 24 tpi.

It's quite impossible to date this headset, as Campagnolo produced it for many years, starting in the 1960s, on into the mid-1980s.

There is the tiniest discernible brinelling. Using loose balls instead of a retainer will probably remove any problem on that account. The chrome is in lovely condition, as the photos show. None of the wrench flats have been rounded. Balls are not included, but we have a good stock of the highest-quality ball bearings.

Galli Super Sport 1" threaded headset. $95.00

This is a classic, simple steel threaded 1" headed made by the Italian Giovanni Galli company in the mid-1980s. The Galli firm started making bike parts in the 1930s, but really hit the big time in the 1980s. The Galli component line extended from the semi-pro level (Super Sport) to the most exotic titanium super-lightweight parts. Top pros such as Herman van Springel raced on Galli parts. But like so many European firms, they were unable to withstand the onslaught of Asian production. Galli closed its doors in 1989.
