However, I cannot find any mention of these parts in the Campy 17b catalog. When did the S/R model get discontinued and does anyone know where I could get one?

Campagnolo never offered an aluminum alloy seat post binder bolt, but a few after market parts manufacturers did. From memory there was Arnold (sp?) Industries, O.M.A.S., Pedrini; some were marked with the manufacturer's name and some were not. In practice, these did not work out very well as there was a high failure rate.
