You could just an angle value to multiply the radius or thickness by.
use atan2, and make sure the output of the function varies from 0 to 1 from one
side of the unit circle to the other.  then multioply by some amount of bend and
then add 1, to get a range from 1 to N.

If you know how to do things like geometric inversion, you could use that to
distort the cylinder like a torus is distorted into a Dupin cylide.

There may be other ways as well.
