There's a carb on eBay right now, came off of an '87. It ends in a little over an hour if you are inerested. No - it isn't mine!
Well I got it running but if anybody's got a cheap carb and a new air boot sitting around I could definitely use it. Thanks
Word of warning about eBay carb buys. You'll probably also want to get a rebuild kit and a can of part dip. Last carbs I bought off of eBay were completely full of varnish and required a not insignificant amount of cleaning and all new jets and gaskets to make them serviceable. Still, $22.51 plus whatever a rebuild kit for a single carb runs you sounds like a sweet deal coming from the perspective of having my last rack-o-carbs cost around $50 plus four rebuild kits.

It's a good price but I can't spring on anything just yet. Had to buy a dremel today so it'll be next week before I can make a purchase.
