I restored a basket case 1955 James Commando last year and found the steering head ball races completely worn and decided that taper roller bearings were the answer, this involved turning up a upper and lower taper bearing race carrier from Mild steelf to fit in the frame headstock, then turn down the existing spindle to suit the bores of the taper bearings, its well worth the effort to modify the steering away from the ball and cones - I doubt they are available anymore. Hope this helps.

I got some for a BSA from a cycle shop a while ago, think they were bottom bracket bearings.
