I THINK http://www.richspsxparts.com has them. I have one but I don't remember if its in working codition or not, and since they are kinda hard to install, I don't feel like testing it.

Its just the firmware that makes the GD-Rom difference to a CD rom. Most people don't understand this or beleive it but MidnightObsession put a protable CD players laser assembly into a DC and it worked fine.
So just put a portable cd lens :P
