Does anyone other than Ritchey still make a complete line of polished aluminum bars/stem/seatpost? I am putting together a retro build and looking for options?

If your're looking new, check out the Velo Orange website. They specialize in new but vintage style parts. Thomson makes silver seat posts.

i would buy used and polish 'em up to a mirror-like finish.

Thomson's posts are not polished however.

You know, a little jeweler's rouge and a good polishing cloth can make ANY component polished.
I'm not hung up on the polished part, I just can't bear the idea of putting black components on a classic frame. That might be OK on the ubiquitous stealth gray soulless carbon frame, but not on a classic

If it only needs to be silver, Cinelli makes polished aluminum bars and stems, but they pale in comparison to the Nitto I linked to earlier, and Nitto also has a couple of Nice seat posts..
