Long shot that anyone has an original set.  Is there anyone in BC who manufactures them?

  I bought a new set from a guy in Poland that are very nice.  He advertises on the Samba.  I met him at this years Bug In and would buy from him anytime.

Thanks for the quick responses.  Gord, are yours full height or cab height?  What height is more practical... I know the cab height offers some wind resistance for what that matters. :). I will check out the Polish ones as well Alp.

Yes. Just the bows. From me.
The cab height hoops are definitely better wind resistance. Mine are full height and I would not want to drive long distance with it on again.  Around town it is fine.
