Original tires for my Raleigh Twenty?

I have finally accepted that the original Raleigh Record tires on my Twenty are turning to dust. Even short hops are asking for trouble. I rode it about 70km on the last camping trip and the sidewalls are crumbling.
I would like to replace them with new OEM tires but where would I start looking?
If originals are no longer available, are decent reproductions offered?
I would also like to find a longer seatpost but I think all Twenty's are the same.
And lastly, thanks to all who responded to the missing reflector post! The fender is once again secured.

Thx for the link. I noticed that Simpson Cycles also has listed the redline version of the tire which is what my R20 had originally. I'll have to contact them regarding price and delivery. PG.
