1980ish Fuji Royale seatpost size?

I recently finally removed the frozen seatpost from my 1980 or so Fuji Royale road bike. I need a new one but I have cut and bent the old one up so bad removing it I can't get a reliable measurment or comparison. The lbs picked a new one out for me but it is too small and I hate how the gentleman talks down to me. Anyone know what size seatpost I need? I thought it was a 25.3 mm one but I was informed they don't make seatposts that size. And the one the lbs gave me says 25 4x350 mm. Anyone know what size I need?

Every Fuji I've dealt with, and that's 5 of them (an '85, and 4 '88s), have all been 26.8mm.

From Sheldon Brown's seatpost database:

FujiClub1982?26.6
FujiCross199927.0
FujiFinest197326.4
FujiLeague198526.8
FujiMonterey1981?27.0
FujiProfessional198226.8
FujiRoubaix199726.8
FujiRoubaix200027.2
FujiSagres SP1988?25.8
FujiSX-550199626.6
FujiTeam199726.6(Spec'd for 26.8, owners say 26.6)
FujiTouring Series199726.8

Thank you very much, i will try that. I am aware there is a tool to measure seatposts. I know this is a newbie question but does that measure the post or seatpost hole?

Most of mine have been 26.8, but a few are not. I haven't measured them, just tested it out when seatposts were removed for whatever reason. Maybe ScottRyder will chime in soon. He usually hits up all of the Fuji threads and I believe his first bike was a Royale.

My 1980 and 1981 Fuji America, 1983 Fuji Opus, 1983 Fuji Del Rey and 1986 Fuji Touring Series V were all 26.6. A 1981 Grand SE was 25.4. A 1972 Fuji Finest was reputedly 26.4, but a 26.6 fit better, don't know if there had been manhandling in the past.

I guess I should post an early photo .. it really doesn't get the attention it deserves .... it's bomb proof, goes everywhere and will last for ever.
