I've seen this in a more modern A-headset, so it could be correct. I found this out when an over-zealous, but entirely untalented mechanic tried to rebuild half my bike, which had only gone in for a bottom bracket fix, and he used the wrong size bearings in my headset. It would not turn when I collected the bike from the shop...
Look carefully at the clearences/stacking of the assembly to see if it looks and feels correct.
Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
