aluminum head tubes for 1 1/8" straight steerers

Are there any sources in the US for aluminum headtubes suited for 1 1/8" straight steerers? Seems I can only find headtubes for tapered forks. ie 44mm. I know I can make this size work for my application, but aesthetically it would be very unsettling. Cheers!

You can get more appropriate tubing from Metal Supermarkets.

Metal Supermarkets only shows as carrying 6061 and 6065, but fortunately, I contacted BFS and they have the tubing I need, just not listed on their website
