Is it possible to find a set of second hand forward controls for a 85 xv700?

I can't seem to find the plans. You aren't the first person I saw that referenced them and I really want to build some. Can you provide a link?
Feel like I'm searching for the "Holy Grail".

I had them filed, but d/t a H/D crash lost them on re-boot.
