Chain Ring trouble

I recently got a older Raleigh Super Course Mixte. The middle chain ring is warped, as it looks like it was only held in place by two of three bolts and ridden some distance. I went to my LBS today, but they looked at me a little funny and they only had newer 5 hole chain rings in stock. Any Ideas as to where I can find a affordable 42 teeth chain ring as well as an additional screw and spacer that will be the correct size. I wasn't quite sure whether to post this in C&V or mechanics, but I hope this is alright.

Hmm.......that sucks. I am guessing it’s gonna be pretty hard to find a single chainring to match yours. Ebay seems like the best bet. You could also post in the iso/wtb section on this forum. You never know! Lots of us folks have a habit of holding on to way to much weird stuff just for instances like this. My personal suggestion if keeping it stock is not a priority is to swap cranksets to something newer or at least more serviceable/available. I have been known to buy complete bikes for said single part! I guess if you can’t find a suitable replacement locally (like craigslist or a co-op) you could then venture for a used crankset as mentioned earlier. Again the iso/wtb section is a great place to start.
Good luck!
