Probably Halfords will do them, not cheaply, but they should have them, either that or your nearest exhaust centre. :

Sorry, just had a thought, is it one of the Motor U bolts, a Moteck perhaps? If it is, then exhaust type clamps will not be big enough, I have managed to solve the problem with two long coach bolts, sawing/filing half of the head away to enable them to lock against the bracket. Failing that, some threaded rod of a suitable diameter will do, plus several nuts. :)

If you can't find any big enough U Bolts (and you probably won't) try the threaded rod, should work well. :)
