Just fitted new cups to the steering head. Only managed to drift them in so far, but they are still slightly proud both above and below the headstock. Doesn't look quite right and I'm wondering if they be flush with the headstock, or even recessed? Model D14/4S.

You culd find a long bolt or a bit of studding and some big washers to pull them in a bit more, but I find that tightening the top nut up and adjusting bearings a few times, generally pulls everything together very soon after bike is first used.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

Thanks for that! I'm actually bringing the frame to an engineer tomorrow to get the new swinging arm pin pressed in, I'll get him to put a press on the cups while he's at it.
