Re: headset shims

I made a set with aluminum bar from lowe's last weekend. I later found one that fit. It sucks to buy a HS on this site made for ISO or otherwise. We right BMX. There should never be a non bmx headset sold on this site. i.e a falcon = non BMX.


Ban me! Please!

Porkchop had them a couple of months ago but I no longer see them available on the site. Maybe Dan's?

bought these for a shimano 600 hp-6207, they needed to be machined a bit with the rotary tool i have, a few times. one for cup press, for the frame as these are 1 1/8, the insides had to be taken in a bit ,just a few passes. since the headset lock rings high i had to remove both lips from the headset, ( top & bottom ) gave me a few threads for the lockring. took about 3 hours to get them to work. i had an sst dirt skirt, the shimano is sealed bottom & top, if i want to run it i'd need to switch to a smaller headset bb, these are TRUE LOOSE BALL ( NO CAGE ) 5/32,
i have 3/16 on the way. pics if you need em. it fit now but in not fussing with it if i dont have to at this point. hahah !


they live, we sleep.
looking for bullseye 1st gen cranks, optional bb.

Re: headset shims

I am rebooting my 1996 KHE Lagger and it has a 1" threaded fork, but the top is a 7/8" (22.2mm) non threaded. I was using a 1" non-threaded stem with a 7/8" (22.2mm) to 1" (25.4mm) shim and a pair of Snafu Disco Bars. I have a pair of KHE SwissMiss Bars and want to use the same forks, because I think they are early KHE forks. Anyhow, I am trying to find a 7/8" (22.2mm) to 1 1/8" (28.6mm) shim. And no worries. This is not going to be used for hardcore trickery! Just to ride around. So the safety aspect is not my concern.

Anyone out there see or have a 22.2mm to 28.6mm shim???????????  I would not think it acceptable, or possible, to double shim (ex. 22.2mm - 25.4mm, inside a 25.4mm - 28.6mm.  Or is a 22.2mm to 28.6mm shim out of the question?

Closest I found was a 22.2mm to 27.2mm.

I'd hate to have to use other forks on this. hmmhmmhmmhmmhmmhmm

Any ideas?  LMK
