Pipe Transition

What is the easiest way to make a transition from 3/4" pipe to 1" pipe? TIA.

Not structural, joining 3/4" BOV tube to flange with 1" tube.

Can you join it at 90deg? Just take a piece of 3/4in tube and shape it to fit the 1in. Join it like rollbar tubing joints. Or if you don't need a smooth reducer and it's at the termination of the 1in tube, weld a cap on, cut a 3/4in hole, weld the 3/4in tube on.
