Jonathan Wadhams shows such a cross member in his P4 catalogue, for 75 
GBP.  But given the cost of shipping and that you'd have to get the old 
one cut out and the new one welded in anyway, it might be simpler and 
cheaper to get your friendly welder to fabricate a new one based on 
whatever sound metal there is on the existing member.  It's hardly a 
very complex part.
