Edit: Found your other post. Still curious to see the geometry differences.
The new disk fork was a bit different from the original fork, less bend as I recall. The fork had a 1-inch threadless steerer tube, and rather to my surprise the Origin-8 headset was a perfect fit in the Peugeot and the fork.

I am still tweaking the setup a bit, but when I last rode it it was a bit more twitchy than you average old Peugeot. I won’t be working on it for a while, though, being in Reims.
