I don't like to be harbinger of bad news, but I have a horrible suspicion you'll struggle to find one to fit, as many Puegeots have weird seatpost diameters. The headset is probably the stupid obsolete French size too.

But good luck.

The thing is if it's a Peugeot d'un certain age, it won't take a normal 1" headset, the thread is different.
Not that I want to put you off, but if you don't have the parts, you may struggle to find one.

I have the same frame, it takes a 23mm seatpost with an expander inside like a threaded stem. Don't know where you may find one but I would like a new one as mine is badly gouged by the previous owner. Cheers.

Not too hard to find, but Geoff at matuzmaster in hungary always has a few of these for sale. I have seen a few frames that use them ranging from Mosers, early Coppi's etc. It must have been the trend one year :wink:

I have a 1980's Peugeot HLE Premiere, I got it recently and it is in remarkable condition, thing is though the seat pin is too short and i measure it to be 23.5mm. Does anyone know where I can get a longer one of these?
