[SOLD] FS: Original SR Laprade Seatpost From '83 Spec'l Sequoia (I Think...)

[SOLD] Thanks!
SR Laprade Seatpost From '83 Spec'l Sequoia: $30 shipped conti USA, paypal G&S payment

This has been kicking around here in one parts box or another for a few years. I'm pretty sure it's from an '83 Sequoia frameset I bought a long while ago, then stupidly sold before ever building it up.

Spec-wise it's marked 26.6, roughly 225mm from post-bottom to saddle rail center. Production date stamp is C-83, so March '83 production.

It has the matching blue paint infill on the seatpost flutes. The top of the post is painted as well.

I've got two issues calling this a fer sure '83 Sequoia post. The first is the post is 26.6mm, but I'd expect maybe a 26.8mm post for an '83. I can't find any specs for '83, so that's a question mark. The second issue is my swiss-cheese memory, but I also can't figure any other way I'd wind up with a blue-paint SR Laprade post.

I'm pricing this a little higher than a standard SR Laprade thinking it's an original stock post for a Sequoia. If I'm off-base on that, I'm happy to either revise the listing and reprice or kick it back into parts box limbo.

With all of that outta the way, the post is fairly clean overall, with a few light marks above the Min Insertion mark, but nothing objectionable. Clamp pieces, bolt, threads, etc all look good.

If I'm not mistaken Stumpjumpers of that era also had painted seatpost flutes.

Yeah, I think so, too. I wonder did the early Expeditions have painted flutes as well?

Apparently. Black flutes, I guess to complement the grey frame. Plenty of pictures out there.

From the 1983 catalog:

Yep. Expedition flutes were painted black. I have one like this and I have a scan of a 1983 ad that also shows black flutes.
