Nylfor headset

Nigel Scott 
The Nylfor 'plastic' headsets were imported by Holdsworthy and first listed in 1967/68 - see image below. Sadly I dont have a top locknut for the black set. In my experience of these, I found they lasted well for what they were. Many nuts were probably destroyed by tightening with Mole Grips etc.
