it rides superb for an older machine just found a colnago c40 seatpost but its in belgium but its worth the money.

Any reason why you wouldn't go 27.2 seatpost and a shim? That's what i did on my C50 and it looks and rides great??
+1 I'm currently building a C50 my self and with the price of 28mm Colnago post on ebay starting at $150 is not wise, I'm getting a Deda 27.2 post with the custom made shim at work since it's also hard to find a shim for the 28mm seat tube.

Instead I would recommend using your time to put together something that people with more money but less time will not be able to do. That means building your own low profile wheels with nice tyres, then piecing together a good quality period groupset like DA7700 or 10 speed Record. Then you will have a 1990s pro quality bike which will get a lot of attention as well as riding better than 99% of bikes today.
