Thought there would be some on here but alas not. Just bought a nice stem and interested to see what seatposts might match. Cheers

Which stem have you bought mate? I've either got or have had every retro part X-lite have made over the years so I'll be able to give you an idea.

The one with the holes in. Would like a seatpost to match, probably silver.

I know there were a couple of Clikons and a metal matrix but would like to see a catalogue scan of what was available at the same time as the holey stem.

I've got a little catalogue that is in a NOS seat bolt I've got at home. Can scan it but will need someone to post it here if I can email to them?

I've just sold the one that matches that to racerx it's the ZE one mine was NOS and boxed, he may be persuaded to part with it, this is what it looked like:

The click on and metal matrix posts came later but a silver metal matrix always looks good, and they do there job well too with no slip at all even with a big lump like me on it, I've got them on a few of my bikes.

That's not especially pretty but looks well made, you reckon this was around at the same time as the L168 or whatever it was called do you?

Yeah same time as the holey, you're right it's not as cool as the later stuff, I assume you're going to polish your holey as the ano was very faded so look for a polished Metal matrix good match and beautifully CNC'd finish
