Cb100 cant find tires

Cb1970
Hi all I just recently purchased a 1970 Honda cb100. This is a great little bike I'm just having a hard time finding the rear tire it being 3.00 - 17 with the front tire at  2.5 - 18.  My current CB has a real smooth street tire on the front and a semi knobby blocked tire on the back I really like that original look but the hard part is trying to find a manufacturer that makes both sizes.  I don't like to mix manufacturers any thoughts on where to go? Thanks in advance.  Also I should say I like staying stock I don't want to change the rear tire size.

The parts dept at my local Honda dealer has stacks of books with tires in them. I would assume your local dealer should have the same. You might have to look at Scooter tires, I had to buy a scooter tire for my Twinstar.

Well 2 things:
1, you might need to find the metric size of your tire. Inch size is not used much. https://www.maxxis.com/other-motorcycle-information/motorcycle-tire-school

2, you may need to mix types. As is a dirt rear and street front.
The ride IS the adventure. The destination is just to get gas!
