Does anyone know where I can find an OEM style gas tank bung in aluminum ? I have searched the web and came up with nill . I am thinking if I can't find one I may make a aluminum bung / steel sleeve and press fit with an epoxy adhesive between them . I would like to use a factory style cap is why this is a headache. Thanks to all.

What make and model motorcycle is under discussion? Without that, "factory" has no meaning. If HD, what year, and if split tanks, what side?

Aluminum "Monza" (as in "ancient sports car race track") flip caps are readily available in aluminum and they stay attached at the hinge if you want something classic and sexy.

Aluminum bungs for a HD screw-in emissions style cap could hold up well (no idea where to get 'em) but copying older style cap bungs is asking for bent tangs in the bung.
