As long as you get the matching head gasket (they switch from thick to thin at one point), you can get 1979-2013 head.  Heck, even 77-78 XR75. You will probably need a cam and check the cam tower and the rockers.  Unless you get a smoking deal, you can probably pick up a used engine for about the same price.  There is a guy on ebay that will fix your head for $120, but you will still have to deal with cam and rockers.
