That's not a recumbent specific part so it should be relatively ely easy to find what you need.

1. If you can find a bike shop that's still open, try them. The older the shop the more likely they are likely to have what you need. If they like you it might even be a gimme part.
2. Look around for trash bikes. If you find one that has the cable anchor bolt that you need, grab it and throw everything else away.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

Ouch, Tiagra isn't Dura Ace or Ultegra, I know, but I wouldn't dog it out that bad ...

If you have a local bike co-op, they will likely have a mess of brake parts from donor bikes.
