AC Compressor for SBC

I have a stock 1990 Corvette A/C system and I just converted to R134.

The compressor is making some noise and I assume won't last long.

A new OEM/Stock one is $500.

Is there an aftermarket bracket/compressor I can use that would be cheaper and nicer looking?

I don't like the sotock bracket for the compressor either, it's ugly.

It's a 6 rib serpentine belt.

These seem a little pricey to me, but you get all new pulleys and brackets.
