Where can I find (much) smaller seat posts?

I have not had luck finding a seat post of the appropriate size. The inside of the seat tube seems to be 22 mm. Do they make them this small or is it gonna be difficult/expensive to obtain one?

Yes, probably. Thanks, I don't know why I couldn't find this I tried a search obviously. This looks good, but would (what I presume to be) that connecting bracket in the bottom right of the pic work with regular saddles? It looks strange.

I must be missing something b/c I don't see any connecting bracket in the photo. I just see a straight post with no taper and no additional hardware.

I'd guess that you could get a normal saddle with the proper, "old school" saddle attachment hardware to fit.

LOL, That's a camera symbol. Means it's an image file or something.
