in India just recently and wanted to know if there is a long seatpost that will fit the Downtube and take an old style clamp fixing on the saddle.

What is the seat tube diameter? I have been looking for a 350-400mm straight tube seat post in a 28.6 for my Raleigh compact with no luck. I did find a Kalloy with the microadjust top. They make a little thingey (technical term ) called a seat post sandwich? That will allow a double rail saddle to be mounted on a modern post, but I don't know if it will work with a triple rail or not. Good luck.

If it's a newer downtube it should be 27.2, older it should be 31.4
