1978 Honda NC50 Gas/oil tank question

Hi all, excited to be here. I recently acquired a 78 and 77 NC50. Both orange, both with several issues. I have some experience working with old UJM's (70's-80's) but I am new to Mopeds (or in this case "Nopeds"?) so any general advice (or resources) particular to this machine is welcome since these are my first.

In this case both bikes have the same issue that the Oil sight gauge on both takes is leaking copious amounts of 2 stroke oil. Eventually I may switch to premix but for now I would like to keep the oil tanks and pumps. Usually I am really good at finding parts but but im afraid these oil sight gauges (honda part #55118147010) may be made out of "Unobtainium" ? Any idea where to locate these or if there are other ones that can be made to work? Any help is welcome!
