Goldwing single carb conversion...

Hi all! I am currently experimenting with changing over to a single carb on my $200 Goldwing (got it so cheap because of the whacked out carbs). I have seen many versions but my question is this. Where can one find a STEEL carb spacer flange for the solex VW PICT 34 carb? I have tried many places and all that is sold is aluminum spacers. I would try to make this manifold from aluminum tubing but can't seem to find the correct size tube to fit in the rubber boots on the cylinder head. Any information is greatly appreciated.

It would help if you post year and model of your bike in profile as each is different, hard to help without knowing what bike you have

Looking at your posts from seven years ago it would appear you have a GL1100.
Is that correct?

... what's the big deal of it needing to be made of steel?
