Seat lock receiver - or entire 1979 subframe

Airhead seat lock receiver wanted.  (1979 R65)

Long story short, in the late 80s there was a now regretted single seat conversion done, I now want to return the bike to near standard (the R80 engine is staying).

When the single seat conversion was done the “receiver” for the “tongue” part of the seat lock was cut away (see the first photo).

Ideally, I’d like a 1979/1980 R65 subframe, but I suspect that is not going to happen. The next best alternative is a bent or butchered airhead subframe that still has the tubular brace and lock receiver fitted – I can cut it out of the donor subframe and weld it into my frame.  I’d prefer the tubular type, but if you have the later pressed type (see the second photo)  I’m still interested – just more work for me.

Anyway, please PM me if you have a bent subframe – even better if you can take a cut-off wheel to it and just send me the bit with the receiver on it. I am in Cairns, Australia - happy to pay postage for a complete subframe (if the heavens line up) or for the piece cut out of an otherwise useless subframe.
