This will require a machinist and a lathe to make them. Round stock turned to the proper OD to match the OD of the bearing race, then drilled and reamed or bored hole through the center match the diameter of your center bar. Mine are 1-1/4" thick.

Like a hockey puck with a hole through the middle, and the outside turned to the size of the bearing bore it is going into.
