Low-Tech Parts Washer

On older bikes, I like to recondition the headset as opposed to installing a new one. In my experience, the pieces of a headset and the frame usually "grow old together", warping, flexing and fitting so right. Introducing a new headset is like introducing a new organ into the body, sometimes it rejects it.

My reconditioning process is simple and low tech...a soak in degreaser for a week and carful scrubbing usually reverts the parts to near new condition.
