I recently acquired a French seat post (ATAX) from a wrecked Peugeot. The size is 26.4, which is smaller than ideal, but you might be able to shim it to fit. It is the style that needs no seat post binder bolt since it has its own internal binder system (like a stem that has an expansion wedge). Except for some very light scratches that will buff out, it is in quite nice condition.
If you can use it, it's yours. I'll even spring for the shipping. Oh, BTW, thank you again for sending me the seat binder bolt for my '72 Raleigh Professional. You saved my bike. I hope this seat post can help save yours. If not, I'll keep watching for your 'need' list...

My tout-Francais (or Franco-American) McLean is nearing completion. Belleri bars and stem, Stronglight headset, Simplex shifters and derailleurs, CLB brakes, TA crank and bottom bracket, Maxi-car hubs laced to Mavic MA40's, Maillard freewheel, Ideale saddle and even French cables and housing. What I need now is a French seatpost, either Stronglight or Simplex with a 27.2 mm diameter. I have a 25mm Stronglight but it just too small to shim. I'd even take a 27.0 or 26.8 as I may be able to shim those sizes. I am starting to think that the French never made seat posts in 27.2 sizes. Also, did any other French
companies beside Simplex and Stronglight make seat posts?
Also, I need a 50 tooth and 34 tooth TA ring for Cyclotouriste cranks and the attendant hardware.
I will pay exorbitant prices or I have all kinds of goodies to trade.
All the Best,
George Allen Lexington, Kentucky USA
