You have several options:

1) use a shim with your Miyata seatpost.

2) Cut the base plate off your current seatpost and weld a Miyata
base-plate on instead. A local engineering shop will be able to do this
for you inexpensively. Instead of sacrificing your current seatpost you
could get a BMX 'candlewick' 22.2mm seatpost and use that instead -
these are cheap to buy at bike shops. 'They look like this'
(http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=474)

3) Buy a GB universal seatpost which, if your frame's internal diameter
is 22.2 or 25.4mm, will fit both Miyata and KH saddles.
