I don't recall either the 6-pin  (cassette port, single-sided) or the
24-pin (user port, double-sided) connectors being particularly
difficult to find.  They aren't as inexpensive as, say, a DE9 or DB25,
but they are still being made, AFAIK.

The usual places I start with are Jameco, Digikey, and Mouser.  The
connectors are ordinary 0.154" spacing edge connectors.
