There are a huge number of fork variations that will work for you. Through '77 all the fork parts interchange with yours. Post '77 they became Japanese built but still fit the trees and will fit your bike. So most 60s to 90s forks interchange. Knock yourself out. Single disc, double disc, etc. You will also have the option of a front wheel drive speedo if you feel the need...

They do, but are slightly narrower than early Glides. Not enough to notice.
