Default 1965 1000 Series Steering Shaft

Anyone know where I can buy a brand new 56" steering shaft (not the column) for my 1000? My lower bearing has (unbeknownst to me) been missing, and so I have slowly but surely damaged the shaft to the point where I don't feel comfortable having a machinist simply build it back up and get it flush again. I have a brass bushing coming in the mail that will replace the original bearing.

I'm going to try calling Borgeson tomorrow, but it seems that they only offer shafts in shorter lengths (albeit with the same splicing and threading at the top). Will update once I shoot them a call.

Update: Called Borgeson and asked if they carried a 56" shaft and got a resounding "nope".
