Seatpost Q?

I got a 77 Fuji and need a longer post cause the frame is a little small for me and stock post is super short. The dia is 25.8. I have the original Belt seat and want to use it. I found this seat post

I'm new to the road bike scene so is this gonna be longer than the stock short one? This will fit the belt seat as well right?

Also my bike is a Fuji S10-S but it's a 12 speed. I thought they were 10 speeds. Anyways I need a chain and was lookin at that same site and all they have is 6-11 speed chain lengths? What will work for my bike?

Sorry for the newb Q?s but obviously I am a newb.

Go with your second choice on the seat post and just get a Kalloy 25.8x350mm Silver Seatpost - I think the way your bike is a 6 speed - Old terms 12 speed - So a 6-1 speed chain is ok - I like the SRAM chains...

Yea I went ahead and ordered the second one. Figured if I have a problem with the old seat I won't be screwed with a old seat mount. I didn't bother ordering a chain. I just take it by my local shop and have them size one up. I also picked up Soma thick and zesty bartape, a seatbag, and 2 spare innertubes.
