Need a new bathroom door handle solution

I need a new bathroom door handle solution. It's an all-wood door, 1 1/8" thick with a 1 3/4" backset. The hole for the latch is elongated beyond normal so the handle is difficult to use at best.

This is the original door handle style. Typically used with storm doors, it does not include a latch plate. I'm thinking if I was able to find a door handle with a latch plate and screws, it could be mounted securely preventing the handle and latch from moving when turning.

Any ideas?

I went to a local door shop when I was looking for a replacement handle. They had an incredible selection to choose from.

That is a standard style set.

Many do not have the plate and are just friction fit.

You may need to carve out the recess for a plate style but sharp chisel takes care of that.

Keep screws good and snug and it should not move
