Headtube and steerer tube measurements for your reference.

Definitely not room for a headset and threadless stem, which there usually won’t be on a stock threaded fork. Even if there was room, it’s not a good idea to install a star nut and threadless stem on a threaded steer tube. Generally you must use a headset to match the (threaded or threadless) fork, or at least the proper top portion of the headset.

Thanks for the measurements. So only about 37mm or so. Threaded headsets probably need about that length.

What is the stack height of the threadless headset that you have?

Thanks for the input. I'll get the headset info together and share it later.

Measurements with micrometer:

Headtube length: 3.92" or 99.55mm
Steerer tube length (without crown race) 5.35" or 135.7mm

Not sure how to calculate the exact stack height of the headset so I measured the shoulder area that will sit above and below the headtube
Top - .064" or 16.26mm
Bottom - 23/64" .363" or 9.21mm

So we're looking for the total headtube length with the headset installed, right?
99.55mm + 16.26mm + 9.21mm = 125mm (approx)

Next, looking for the exposed steer tube above headset, right?
135.7mm - 125 = 10mm

Threaded headset is required but my uneducated eyes did not see it. Thank you pointing me in the right direction.

Looks like the threadless headsets can be rehomes or held onto for conversation.

Alrighty... I stepped away from this for a bit and considered what I wanted to do with it.

I tried to get a black NOS XTR headset on another forum but that never happened. More reading revealed Stronglight headsets from the time. Some searching lead me to a NOS Stronglight x16 on ebay which I purchased. It's on the way from the Netherlands. Here are a few pics for reference.

Nitto makes a 1-1/4” quill to 1-1/8 (31.8) threadless adapter so that you can use the OE fork and headset, with a “standard” 31.8mm threadless stem.

Thanks for the suggestion - I was in the process of trying to find one and you saved me some time. A little google foo and I found it on ebay cheaper then checked their website and saved another $5. #nothingcheapaboutthisbuild

Borrowed the XTR brakes from the M2. After a trip through the ultrasonic cleaner they look almost new.
