Make up a thermal barrier from 2 sheets of aluminum cut to the size they need to be. Use washers, bolts and lock nuts (not the ones with the plastic insert) in several locations between the 2 to make a sandwich about 1/2" to 3/4" thick and mount it between the pipe and line. The plate next to the pipe will get hot as the hubs of hell, but the air between the two plates will prevent transfer of the heat to the plate next to the line, particularly if you mount it so that air passes through when you are moving. Problem solved. For cheap.
