Titanium seat post 27mm

Any idea about the maker and value of the seat post?
Looks to be American Classic.
Thank you.

That might be an American Classic but the head does not look like the two American Classic posts I have. I bought a ti seatpost that was almost an American Classic clone in the late eighties. I believe it was made by a company in Arizona with a very brief existence. Like yours, my clamp broke but worse. I was able to replace the clamp piece with one from an American Classic though it did not fit perfectly. I think I had to do a little modification to it.

Ding, ding! I think you’re correct.

Ultimate TI Company out of Arizona. Here’s a photo of one, extremely similar to OP.
