Try W&W Cycles but this is an expensive shop here in Europe.
Just a question, I never disassemble the fork till now but is it not possible to make them with a lathe? Some years ago I worked in a mold construction enterprise and I make by myself all the engine bushing with Ampco45,a self lube alloy, it works great and it was a really cheap way to rebuild the engine.

Dear Giovanni,
The originals are real thin like .070" thick = 1.78 mm. A cast or cut bushing wont press in tight without falling apart.
I think they are called bi-metal or tri-metal because the bronze is layered sometimes with babbit on a steel housing just like transmission main drive gear bushings made by the same company.

It says Clevite 02510R for the long one and Clevite 02511R for the short one.

Hope this helps,
