1.25" x .188 wall would get you to .874". 7/8" is .875, so that should work. I dont have a tap hole size chart in front of me, but you may want to check into the tap recomendations to be sure.

Shouldn't that be 7/8-14?

Anyhoo, the drill size for 7/8 coarse and fine is around 3/4". So if you get tubing with a 3/4"ID you will be able to drill it to size for the tap. OD and wall thickness are up to you.
