I can't see why not. The only problem you might have is if it's French threaded on the bottom bracket. Some bikes had French threading on the fork also. No problem if you keep the stock fork, headset and stem. Good luck

[edit] On second thought, post this in the vintage forum. Have the exact model and some photos ready also. They can probably give you much better advice seeing as the bike is probably older.

I agree, I'm moving this to Classic & Vintage from General Cycling. Rafael, feel free to add pics and other information to this thread as required.

That's a wise move. There are a lot more people here with French bike knowledge than anywhere else on the forums.

Rafael,

You should be good to go with the Mirage components on the Tourmalet. Peugeot began making the switch from French threading to BSA around 1980. They began using Swiss threading on the BB's first followed by full full conversion to BSA BB's and headsets in the mid-80's

OT, but isn't the term BSC (British Standard Cycle?), rather than BSA?

Also make sure the brakes will work. I am guessing your frame will work with recessed type brake mounting, but you might want to fit them up to make sure. I ended up having to source some nutted brakes for a 1981 frame.

In 1884 the British Association for the Advancement of Science adopted a thread form and series, primarily for use in precision equipment. It was inspired by one used in the Swiss watch and clock industry, and was formerly sometimes called the Swiss Small Screw Thread System; but is now just referred to as the BA series. Like the Whitworth thread, it has a rounded root and crest, but the included angle is 47.5 and the radius was originally 2/11 (0.1818) times the pitch, but at some later point was changed to 0.18083.


Despite the date of origin and the British sponsorship, the BA is a metric series. Not only is it based on the meter, but the thread frequency is specified in terms of round numbers in the pitch sequence, with threads per meter allowed to fall where it may.

The British Association thread played a role similar to that of the ASME series in the United States, that is, it filled in sizes below a quarter-inch. The sizes most used were the even-numbered ones between 0 and 10, inclusive. The very small sizes, from 17 up, were rarely used. The British Standards Institution (BSI) discouraged the use of #0 BA in favor of the 7⁄32″ BSF.

The BSI recommended this series replace the BSW and BSF series for all screws smaller than inch, and deprecated the use of the odd-numbered gages. The inch BSF was retained and the 0 gage BA discontinued (the two were too easily confused).

In 1966 the BSI declared the BA screw thread obsolete; its place was taken by ISO screw threads.
