Got Shims?

Is there a supplier, either in lake county or online, that sells shims?
Anyone here happen to have 2 2.75mm shims for a early 80s GS 450cc - 1000cc? BikeBandit does not have the size I need, and I only need 2, so the shipping cost from most online parts houses would be greater than the cost of the shims.

Chicks dig guys with hippohands on their sportbikes.

29.5mm dia. It does list part number as 12892-45011, size 2.75mm. It is an over-bucket shim.
