Anchor bolt for Suntour Cyclone Rear Derailleur

Came into a couple of nice Suntour Cylcone rear derailleurs (the originals, not Mk II), but both are missing the anchor bolt. I'm having a devil of a time finding it at any of my usual spots. Anyone have one (or two?) lying around?

Here's a good shot of what it looks like: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7516215@N03/4374907114/

How about a short, suitably threaded (M5x.8 most likely) allen head bolt from any hardware or home store?

I'm not worried about creating a solution that will make it work if I can't find the part. I'm asking if anyone has the part, which is a bit different from an M5 bolt from Home Depot.

Being snippy won't bring them out of the parts bin, IMO.

I didn't take the reply as being overly snippy, just that the OP wants to keep them period correct. I hope he succeeds.

Found one. Thanks to anyone who looked. Also found a few M5 anchor bolts that are close matches. If anyone needs one in the future and comes across this thread, message me, I'll probably have some extras.

You might be interested to know, HillRider, that Jerry Kraynick had the exact match in the back of one of his brake part drawers. Just took about an hour of searching to find it. Man never fails to amaze me with his collection of odds and ends...

Yep, I'm familiar with Jerry's museum/bikeshop/parts bin and equallty amazed at what turns up there. Your sig doesn't give a location but if I knew you were from the area, that's the first place I would have recommended.

Just another example of how a complete profile, including location, can help get better answers. Knowing where someone lives can help steer them to the right guy who can help.

I appreciate it, though I'd already been there to look through the usual spots for the part once. I find it tough to stay away for more than a couple of days at a time What are your best finds there? This is up there for me with a drop bolt I needed for some short reach brakes.

Mostly a collection of 74 mm bcd granny rings in a whole range of tooth counts. Jerry had a whole table top of them. Also some odd ball freewheels several years ago. It's fun just to wander around.
