I have had my second-hand 1989 Peugeot road bike (don't think all the parts are original though) taken apart at Evans Cycles so I could get the frame powder coated (I lack the tools to do it myself). I am now figuring out how to put it all back together and starting with the headset - but I think there is a part to it missing!
As you can see from the pic before the bike was dismantled, the headset sits flush with the fork neck/bottom of steerer tube.
But now, there is a 5mm ish gap at the bottom where the crown race is too narrow to fit and the ball bearings are visible - that can't be right can it? It seems like I'm missing a seal or that the bike shop have replaced the old crown race with one that doesn't fit when handing me back all the dismantled parts?
The top part of the headset is Campagnolo but the bottom part doesn't have any branding on it. Am I missing a part? If so how do I get a new one without replacing the whole headset?
Thanks in advance for any help.
