Default Re: 3/4" o.d. tubing

Does anybody have a source for some steel tubing with a 3/4" outside diameter that is strong enough to act as a seat post? I am sure there must be something out there but I am not having any luck finding it. Thanks!

Picture please...I would like to see the seat tube and clamp setup before I whip up a solution.

I have plenty of tubing here so it's no problem. If you decide to go it alone...use a minimum of 3/32" wall steel tube. Check your seat post I.D. down the tube a bit. The top may be splayed which would give you a false reading.
