(Was posting this in the 'stupid questions thread' but figure they questions will keep on coming)
So...not sure if this'd require it's own thread, but I've been working on fixing up an old Hercules (pre-raleigh) bike and run in to my latest snag. I can't get the headset apart. I've managed to unscrew everything (though I know none of the names) I got the lock thing unscrewed, then wiggled the lamp holder up, unscrewed the next thing, caught all the ball bearings (assuming 58 sounds right?)...and also unscrewed the bolt in the top of the handlebars. Nothings giving though, except the frame freely slides up and down it now.
I had read that I should undo the bolt in the middle of the handlebars half way and then tap it, to dislodge the wedge thing...so did so, it's now loose, but no sign of movement, can still screw it back in though.
Any thoughts? Photos needed? (What'd help most?)
