I asked this in the broken post thread, but got no response. So I'm being direct.
Where can I get a steel handlebar post to replace the aluminum one I have on my P8?
The older steel ones are not adjustable but I might be able to cut one and add a conventional stem.
I DO abuse my P8, and I don't like taking chances at 20+mph.

I tend to contact the sources directly if I can do so. Contact Dahon directly at: (626) 305-5264 M-F business hours PST. Talk to their own parts department. Or call Thor at:
Tel. 800 222 8356
Tel. 618 395 3840
Fax. 618 393 2956

Dahon does not make steel handleposts anymore. Your best chance is either Gaerlan, ThorUSA or make one yourself.
Even with a steel post, "abuse" (i.e. pull back hard and often, i.e. treat it like any normal bike) the handlepost and it will eventually fail.

I have my steel one piece post/ handlebar in the garage off of a 2006 Boardwalk S1. I took it off and replaced with the Revolve stem, it needs a bolt/ nut for clamping to the fork, I needed the longer bolt for my Revolve after the short one stripped out. $30 plus shipping from 53572
