I don't know why you post isn't coming up but....

Yeah the cable guide should have been repaird before the powdercoating. It needs to brazed off and then new one brazed on so a few inches of paint would be burnt off and I don't know what would happen to the coating.

As for the seatpost, just a nice alloy post with a integral seat clamp, IIRC 27.2 diameter.

As long as it fits and is mechanically sound and functioning correctly I would recomend riding it like it is for a few weeks until you get comfortable with the bike. Avocet saddles are generally pretty nice. A decent leather saddle will run you $50-70+ A Brooks will be well over 100+
