Huh? This is the one component you can easily skimp on. It's the least stressed, not part of the fixed gear drive train and even a $10 headset will do you well if you repack it/take care of it.

Another thing to keep in mind that if are doing a conversion, sometimes the fork steerer is cut so short that you can't put something like a 105 modern hs on it. The stack height is much more than the old shimano ones.
