Default what year swingarms fit a 1980 ironhead?

I've seen some threads for like a 1979, but I know that those had some year specific parts.

So what years could I get a new swingarm from for my 1980? It doesn't look like ebay has any from a 1980 (but there are some from some other years). If those won't work, anyone know of a website I can get my swingarm from?

Thanks!

Thanks! Finding one is going to be the hard part. The owner I bought the bike from kind of wrecked the old swingarm in several different ways, so I'm not even sure it's fixable. If I can't find one, I'll probably take it to a machine shop and see if there is anything they can do!
