I need a silver 0 setback seatpost.

I need a silver 0 setback seatpost.
I have a Bridgestone RB-1 that uses a 27.0 seatpost.

Finding a 27.0 seatpost isn't the problem. But finding one in silver that doesn't have setback is.

Any guesses where I can find one?

I really don't want to do the shim thing.

Damn I was going to say Thompson but they only do black in that 27.0. Weird.

Maybe polish out a black one?

I had the same dilemma building up my RB-1 last year. I wanted zero setback and silver. I ended up using an American Classic which has a little bit of setback.

Silver seatposts are getting harder and harder to find!

EDIT: I have this on a different bike and it is decent. It is a Kalloy:
