    Gippieme headset to shimano 600

    I bought a cheap roadbike from the nineties (Daccordi frame)that has an indexing alloy threaded Gippieme headset. Can I use a NOS Shimano 600 headset in stead ?

    Assuming the stack height is close enough that the fork steerer isn't too short, yes, the Shimano will be a direct, and much better, replacement.

    Yes it worked ! I managed (with a lot of fumbling) to replace the Gippieme with the 600. Had to use the spacer from the Gippieme as well, but everything seems OK.
