Default intake manifold

I really dont like the bend/kink in my kit supplied intake. Is there any reason that one could not be made from some copper tubbing? Just curious. Figure copper is really easy to work with and easy to braze but would probably have to use the factory mounting flange. Take a little work to get the diameter right at the carb but other than that does anyone see a problem with using copper? Also thinking about messing around with some emt (galvanized conduit). Sure not as pretty as the billet but I'm more about function than form.
I am unemployed right now and taking it out on my bikes!
