Folding stems are really hard to find. In most cases you have to buy a bike to get one. It should be just a folding stem, not with the handlebar built in, so you can set it up to fold right or left, front or back.
Long seat posts are very hard to find. You'd want to stock two or three different sizes.
With rim availability, the issue is usually the spoke count. 36h rims are not too hard to find, but 28h can be a real challenge.
