why couldn't a threadless headset be used? then lock it down with a spacer or two, a threaded ring, and the top locknut? i don't know. maybe it wouldn't work or "look right" ...though i imagine it'd look fine depending on the headset. conversely, use a threaded headset, dremel the threads on the top threaded race and then proceed with spacer/s, ring, and locknut. in that case, it'd still look like a threaded headset ..ie. not out of place

it's just a thought if getting more threads cut proves to be too much difficulty
