If worse comes to worst, you can always bend some bar stock.

Check out Scraps bars, I think he made them from a water pipe :p

First of all the word tubing itself means "a hollow cylinder". So saying "hollow tubing" doesn't really make sense. Just for future reference...

There's countless places to find it. Home Depot, Ace, local material distributors, online (McMasterCarr). Possibilities are endless.

BTW, the stuff you get at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. is not gona work for bars. They don't have anything close to 7/8". It's an odd size that home builders have no use for. The closest thing to that size is going to be 1/2" Scheduale 40 water pipe. witch measures 0.840 OD. What you need is 0.875 OD. It's close, but my not clamp tight enough for controls.

I did make my bars using a section of 1" Scheduale 40 pipe. It measures out to 1 1/8" witch works good with MX Fat bar risers. Although I had to weld pieces of 7/8" bar to the ends to fit my controls.

I droped my first bike so many times I started using 1/2" or 3/4 water pipe.
Cost about .22 cents to replace when I bent it.{ this was in the mid 80s.}
Paint it Black and go.....

I've got 7/8" drag bars on my rat, but drag bars are going to be slightly bent. Then again, they're only $12ish. I second the suggestion of buying straight 7/8" tubing off the internet if you want the straight drag bars.
