What you guys suggest for another option to the original seatpost on my Orange E3 (96-97). I've cleaned up and retained most of the original bits on it so far but the seatpost is heavily scratched and rusted - figure if I clean n polish it up it will only be a matter of time before it deteriorates again. Are there any alloy choices that wouldn't look out of place and maintain a degree of period feel...??

I would agree USE Alien. Lots of Orange owners at the time fitted USE as an upgrade. You also need to find a post that will fit, which isn't that easy, so Alien plus shim is an answer to that.
