Subject: [CR]27.0 mm seatpost for ca. '76 Colnago Super?

I'm in the process of building up a ca. '76 Colnago Super and for whatever reason assumed that a 27.2 mm seatpost would be right. Appears not and a search of Sheldon's seatpost database indicates that the pista model is 27.0mm. Can anyone confirm that for the road bike?

I guess I already know the answer and had better resign myself to hunting one down. Not an enviable task...

Could pull the Coppi-labeled one off my very beater Fiorelli and replace it with something cheap and modern but would prefer an NR one for the Colnago. Suggestions or sources for a "user" would be welcome, it won't be a concours bike.
