I purchased 4 of those headsets from another source for close to $70 and still considered them a bargain at that price ! - good stuff

There is also Continental Grand Prix tires for $19/each. Don't know much about this model and it may not be a USA model.

IMO the Stronglight A9 cartridge headset is an even better deal.

After getting frustrated with rapid wearing HG73 chains, I decided to snag a couple of the Ribble Campy 9 chains. I've got one in use now. So far it seems to be working well. I suppose I should measure it soon.

I'll look at those headsets. My latest build used a Ritchey Scuzzy Logic 1" threadless headset with sealed cartridge bearings.

I have no problem with going forward a bit with technology, and am happy to try sealed cartridge bearings rather than loose bearings. Although, I will admit that my old Colnago has decades old loose bearings, showing a lot of wear, but still seems to ride nicely.

@CliffordK - FYI the Campy threaded is caged bearings.

Yes, I had assumed loose caged. The Scuzzy Logic (threadless) is sealed cartridge. Unfortunately, the 1" are becoming harder to find. I think there may be some advantages of sealed cartridges, at least for the lower bearings. And a minute amount of friction from sealed cartridges is of little concern.

Anyway, the Campy is nice for a "vintage" build, but there may also be better headsets available.

Am I the only one who thinks that the way "RECORD" is written on the locknut looks cheap?

+1, cartridge bearings, much less obnoxious branding, and 40% less in price.

I had that last remaining A9 in my shopping cart yesterday, but decided not to pull the trigger.

It is now inevitable that I'll come into possession of a really nice frame in nead of a headset.
