Anyone know who supplies the rubber tube thingy that connects carb to original air filter on a '55 swing arm flash ?

Use a bit of 1" double sided velcro, and just rap it around about two turns, works fine for me and a lot easier to get of and on.

Don't forget the spring retainers for the tube.
My tube disintegrated fairly quickly with the fuel.

Mine came off a washing machine/
Whenever anything like that has to be replaced I strip out anything that looks like it might be useful, springs, clips. belts ..... only downside is the need for another shed!!!
