I can't seem to find one anywhere. It is for an early 80's Peugeot road bike. I am 99% sure that is the correct size. I used calipers, plus I understand from looking at Sheldon Brown's website that that size was actually used on another Peugeot. I have done several searches. I need something about 8 inches long. If anyone know of somewhere where I can get one custom built that could be an option too.

Thanks!

I thought of that, but I haven't found a shim to work either.
You'd need to make up 1.8mm diametrically, or 0.8mm on the radius.

0.8mm*1"/25.4mm = 0.0315"

0.032" shim stock is pretty common stuff. Call around. If Home Despot does not carry it, I bet you could find a local machine shop (or some such business) who would sell you a bit for not much money.

You could also buy it from www.mcmaster.com, but they only sell it in large quantities which start at ~$32. McMaster is famous for have lots of stuff, but for REAMING you price-wise.

Good luck,
