'65 Tradewind - backset issue

Hi Everyone,
This is my first post (I should've posted a long time ago b/c I have a new problem and or question every day). I had a cracked door frame which could only be fixed with bolts. To do this, I needed to take apart the door handle as well as the keyed deadbolt. I want to replace both the keyed deadbolt and the door knob.... however, I realize that the old Weiser door knob has a 3.5 inch backset. I CANNOT FIND A replacement 3.5 inch backset to save my life. Anybody have any luck sourcing one?
Please take a look at my project: Flickr: riley_jonathan's Photostream
