    Tandem headset size for a '69 Paramount

    Building up a '69 paramount and just found out that the headset is not standard.

    Does anybody knows what size I need to shop for?

    It looks like a regular threaded road headset, with a hanger for cantilever brakes.

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    The size is not standard. I have a campy headset from a standard paramount and the headtube is too big for it.
