in need of a rear derailleur

I need a rear derailleur for my sekine rebuild (no the original shimano eagle anchor wont go back on it) The original rear derailleur is working finely as well as the front one but they are much too heavy duty for what i want to achieve, A commuter would be better suited by these.

Here lies the problem, No and i mean not a shop around me has any older rear dérailleur in their part bins. they all want to sell me brand new stock like a shimano sora or tiagra (style looks odd and too much $$ for me). Also the only bike coop in the 100km around me is only opened at the hours my work shifts are at.

so if someone could find a usable old derailleur in their bins (I dont mind scratched up parts, i put some life back in 2 campy chorus RD in the shine department) preferably alloy and not stamped steel, i could check out my par bin and propose something in exchange.

thank you!
