    Head set could be Stronglight? A close up pic would help. Sure the seat post isn't stamped 26.4? That would make more Frenchsense but, anything is possible. 25.4 might account for the shim.The plot thickens, as they say.
    actually that hanger looks EXACTLY like I thought: the DO is Simplex (look closely at the upper right curved area) and it's a standard Campy piece made just for this purpose, or to repair a Campy DO... I do think this is a Gitane, and if not a TdF then something similar for a non-USA market. Take it to a LBS with a seat post gauge and see if a 26.4 or 26.6 is the correct size.

    It's the often-missing cradle piece, and you are not the only one looking for one! Since they fall right off when the saddle is removed, they often disappear in the bottom of boxes and bins. If you have a rare size post (which you do) somebody might still want that post even with a missing cradle(s) to fit a rare frame, and will swap cradles from a more common (like 27.2) post, or maybe use another brand of cradles (Avocet, Ofmega) if the cradles can fit the NR "stumps" on the post.

    So, my question: can other brand cradles fit a NR stump? Or be modified to fit?
