No, the one I have is not for sale. I use it daily. Richard Penney's bottomless 54mm PF is even nicer than the 49mm version, because it has added heft due to the larger diameter. But because of that additional material, it's probably not economical to build. Not to mention the fact that 54mm is an odd size. I bet Richard only ever made one batch of his NEWD PFs in 54mm.
Your best bet is to modify an OEM PF. But that could be tricky to find.

You might try Cerini Coffee. They are selling the new Maximatics and have the 54mm group and the big PF seals listed on the site. They have the 49 portafilters listed at $150 so hopefully they could get the 54 for that price. Then you could have that PF chopped. Not cheap but there are not that many options available. Except finding a used machine for cheap!
