Hi folks we have a great deal on at the moment on Tange Levin headsets. These look absolutely perfect on vintage rebuilds and they are as high quality as you would expect from a company that has been around for over a 100 years.
Available in Chrome and Alloy both headsets are NJS accredited. NJS parts are of the highest quality and certified to be used in Keirin races in Japan. They are perfect replacements for 70s and 80s Campagnolo Record headsets and you’d be hard pushed to tell the difference.
Anyway we don’t have a huge amount in stock but we are giving 25% off the retail price until the stock runs down a bit so grab a bargain while you can!
