You could try to contact Clint Reynolds.
OR
Buy the clamp and figure out where you need to mount to, then fabricate. That's a simplistic sounding way of saying make it happen. "Necessity is the mother of invention""

Here is a rack I designed and built for the back of a Sportster. It is crude, because we didn't have the proper tools to make it "pretty" but it works!

A loop from the rear saddlebag racks has a fork lockdown at the back. Two support straps create the triangle to two more mount points for strength. A double flat bar strap bent into a wine bottle shape up to a U-shaped piece 2" wide, and a bolt through that "U" with a plate that pinches the lower stays just in front of the rear wheel, and you have a solid bike rack. You can still mount the saddlebags too!

The vertical straps to the lower stays allows you to stack a tent, sleeping bag, duffle bag, etc., and create a backrest for the rider.

The angle of the bike and the height of the brake levers off of the ground are determined by the length of the vertical straps to the lower stays.

Be sure to REMOVE any cycle computer, light, phone mount or anything else from the handlebars that can be noted off via a bump or a railroad crossing, and remove the PUMP too. Bungies attach the front wheel to the frame, and the plate for the lower stays can be made to fit tightly, to prevent the rear wheel from spinning in the wind. Also, any elastic seat cover will be blown off.

Make sure the rear bolts near the tire are not long enough to cut into the sidewalls!

Enjoy!
