    Pro LT, maybe? They come in that clamp size but not sure about the drop.

    Your only option would be to try and find some old Cinelli Giro D'italia in 26.4mm (the new ones are 26.0). FWIW 26.4mm is the old Cinelli standard that they dropped in the 1990s, then everyone standardised on 26.0mm before the introduction of 31.8mm oversize about 10 years ago. Alternatively, buy a new stem for 26.0 bars - but these days the choice of new bars in this size is fairly limited.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
