Longest headset spacers?

Finishing a build of my wife's touring bike and had to use a number of spacers. would like to clean it up a bit and use fewer. What are the longest spacers available? I found 20mm.

I've found some plastic pipe of the right dimension which I used to cut my own spacers with. Probably in the 40-50 mm range.

Cane creek Interlocking spacers stack by tongue and groove to act as One..

and of course a Frame Builder can make a spacer from the right kind of tubing

to what ever length you need ..

I am replacing the steering Mast on my Bike Friday with Custom Parts , I'm using that approach.

Foot long Spacers..

Yes they do. And they have a very nice finish. I needed 27.5 mms and didn't want a mix and match stack so I got a Wheel's 40mm and milled it down. One spacer, cleaner look.

Yes, I know, I have a problem.
