Hi Mick, don't know the answer to your question about other interchangeable sources, but here's a set currently on eBay. Not sure if he'll ship to the U.K. (you can always ask him though)

Check Ebay UK for 32mm x 44mm x 10.5mm fork seals, lots of aftermarket fork seals.  The BS seals are the same size as a number of 70's 175/185 Kawasakis, Yamahas and Suzukis.  Some of the listings for the aftermarket seals will give you a list of the models they fit, in case you want to buy OEM from a dealer. The BS175/200 doesn't need dust seals as the fork boots take care of that job.

      Hi Mick,
                Brian in the UK, welcome to world of Bridgestone.
   Here's what you need :-
          https://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/Seals-All-Oil-Seals/c19_4463/index.htm         Link doesn't seem to want to go to correct item but they do have the fork seal size specified above.

        This company can supply most of the bearings and seals you may require and save shipping/import from US.
       You're never too old to restore a BS, good luck and ask any questions you like, we are all here to help.
