    There aren't any that fit your bike (except the 1977-1979 rear - the front is a drum on 33mm forks). Not without machine work and you need to know your donor.

    I said it in your other post, you bought a bike there is no aftermarket for outside of regular service items (plugs, oil, etc). These aren't like cars, there aren't a lot of universal standards. On old Hondas even the brake systems are different between wheel types. The bike was cheap for a reason and that reason is because you have to fab nearly everything custom you want to do.
