Gazelle Chainguard Parts?

The last part I'm looking is the rear of the chainguard, which is made of plastic and snaps into place.

The chainguard is not like those made currently. Current available parts do not rise up to fit the diagonal angle behind the axle.

Circa 1990, these guards were made as 2-piece or 3-piece assemblies, depending on the model. The main top and bottom portions are made of the same rigid plastic, the seams of which are fused/melted together along the long edge, either side of the chain (very unflexible and hard to remove). The rear piece, I believe, was created in order to give quick access to the Sturmey-Archer hub and axle. I'm guessing the might have been prone to popping off.

A similar chainguard of the same era, which also uses that rear piece

From the Hollandbikeshop.com link. I would shoot them an email as they may have the answer for you if no-one here chimes in.

"Want to make sure these parts fit your Gazelle bicycle?
Send a message to helpdesk@hollandbikeshop.com including your frame number,
photos, additional information and/or other parts you\re looking for.
The frame number is usually located either on the seat tube, near the bottom bracket or on the chain stay.
The Gazelle frame number (bar code) often starts with a 'G'.
We'll be happy to assist you."

Yeah I did, but they were on vacation last week, and they said they'd reply on the 8th but so far there's been no response. I just placed a big order for a bunch of parts from them! If it's not on their site I don't think they carry it. Might be a very rare part to find, but I'm still hoping!
