Good luck with your hunt. I spent a half dozen years tracking one down. Fabricated a temporary in the meantime by welding a turned down rod to a modified S3 shifter base.

RD Enterprises sells new ones. Not cheap but they are perfect.

The RD shift lever looks to be different from the lever in my very early S1 which has a shaft that tapers along its full length. The RD lever looks like the S2-early S3 type before the isolation lever was introduced.
