Default Purchasing rails

Due to increasing expenses, I have decided to start building a front yard setup with roll-in's, rails, and a couple little jumps. I can post pictures later, just waiting on my sister to upload the photo's. Anyways, where could I buy more rails to add to this? I have one, it came with a plastic kicker for skateboarding, and works great. It's a box rail, not like a butter box or anything, just like an inch or two wide all the way around. I haven't been able to find any more like this at any of my local stores. On ccs.com they're asking rediculous prices for these things. $70 for a base to a rainbow rail, like seriously..? I'm not a welder, and can't make anything like this right now, although may be forced to learn how to by next winter. But if anyone knows any place I can get some good rails for a decent price, will you let me know? And the snow makers, if anyone has a recommendation on those, I would appreciate it. I get enough snow not to have to worry about it, but to be able to start building and shaping what I want to ride months earlier would be fantastic...
Thanks. And again, I'll post some pictures later, it's a pretty sweet setup already for what I have to work with.

8ft long, 10" wide, less then $60, and less then an hour to build. The PVC board is from Lowe's and comes in a bunch of different sizes. Slides good and doesn't damage your board.

Nice set up John Doe!

OP, if you have a local welding shop, you might be able to get something from them. I would also look around town and see if there isn't something you could find that could be altered in some way to work.

Im on the look out for one of these during the summer.

Knock out the middle bars, weld the 2 pipes together and bury it in with cement. Hope fully I can make a cheap functional rainbow rail.

To the o.p. you gotta look around town during the summer. When places are rebuilding and tearing stuff down. I use a bike rack as a 8 foot round rail. It works perfect, but of course it could be longer.

Nice! I like your style! I'm always on the lookout for old culverts. Pretty simple jib, fill with snow and bury for a good time!
