"Star" brand headsets

So... About 8-10 years ago my dad was a partner in a company called Sigma Precision Manufacturing out of Carson City, NV that made high-end headsets under the "Star" brand name. The only made them for about 2 years or so and the company subsequently went out of business.

So here I am 8 years later doing my first project build, and I'm thinking how cool it would be to have one of these headsets on my ride. My dad doesn't have any headsets since he gave away all his extras about 5 years ago.

AFAIK, They came in 3 sizes 1", 1 1/8" threaded and threadless. I'm looking for an 1 1/8" threadless.

They were made of stainless steel and incorporated a meachanical seal like a waterpump that made it truly waterpoof.

Any help locating one would be very helpful! Does anyone know anything??
