Default Help with old Flow FL-11

I picked these up on ebay as a christmas present for my little sister. I have no idea what year they were made, but they are VERY well built, polished aluminum highback and base, more adjustment than my older NXT's or any new flow binding. They seem to be missing a couple parts on the latch. There is nothing to hold the latch closed expect the tension on the cable, seems like if you leaned forward far enough they could come un-latched. They were also missing the adjustment screw on the latch for the cable tension/forward lean, the bolt in the picture I picked up at the local hardware store.

I've tried google and other searches, only thing those come up with is some plastic FL-11's that look completely different.

So, has anyone seen these or own a set? What's missing on the latch? I sent an e-mail to Flow but I havn't heard back yet.

I did a bit more searching but couldn't find anything helpful. The only other set of aluminum FL-11's I could find was another ebay auction that ended a few months ago, they look like they're even older than the set I have. Didn't know flow used to use a strap instead of a cable for the highback...the latch on these is completely different. I might have to make something for these, I've got a couple good ideas but if I knew what parts were missing it might make it a bit easier.

These are not mine, mine have a cable, but it's the only other pic I could find of aluminum FL-11's

$50 shipped, maybe a few bucks less, don't remember the exact amount. I thought about switching the straps from my NXT's onto these and keeping them for myself, give her the NXT base with FL-11 boot straps, but I like the white/green on my board, and girls love shiny stuff, right? The cable length is adjustable, has 4 different holes to go through and the adjustment at the lever, 3 different positions for the highback. The aluminum base with some new flow straps with ratchets would be a real nice setup.

I think the missing part is a dinosaur bone that holds the strap.

You might be right, please tell your mother to remove the bone from her ass and send it back to me, I think that's where I left it...

Anyone have a helpful suggestion? I realize they are probably as old as my little sister, but they look hardly used and are much higher quality than most new bindings out there.
