'60s Bargman L-77 door handle!!!

Did anyone see this hard to find 60's door handle on ebay? Some lucky airstream owner has a brand new door handle/lock! It seems that the outside handle on these would break off, yet everything else would be intact. My handle is in perfect condition. The problem is I am missing the lock cylinder. Does anyone out there have one with a lock cylinder and broken handle that would be willing to sell? Or any other suggestion on what to do?

Steve, I sold the L-77 lock and handle on eBay. I first made mention of them here on this thread:
http://www.airforums.com/forum...ad.php?t=16672
Note that I sold one handle to a forums member.

There was a lengthy discussion of the L-77 on these forums which was unfortunately deleted when the Parts forum was closed and deleted. I believe there was mention of the Hurd cylinder in that thread. I mentioned the loss of that information in post #11 of this thread:
http://www.airforums.com/forum...ad.php?t=16968

The RV shop where I found the obsolete lock and handles did not have any replacement lock cylinders for the L-77.
If you locate a source, please pass it along.

Thanks too Rog,
I was up late reading all of those threads on the handle etc... somehow I missed the Hurd cylinder thread. I'm on it and I'll report back.
