Why not cushman pistons they are the old standard and allow 74 wheels and rods?
If you insist on modern slipper skirt design ck out Datson pistons, I think that the one that is used is from a L20B but memory fails. Wichever it is it has to be trimed on the skirt and will require 45 rods.
There is also suposed to be a Ferrai piston that will work. But I never checked this out as the price is bound to be incredable.

I JUST PURCHASED A SET OF SCOUT STROKER PISTONS FOR MY WL ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT I CAN
NOT USE A 4 5/8 STROKE AS THE CASES CAN'T BE GROUND OUT ENOUGH FOR THE RODS, SO I HAVE A NEW SET WITH CH OF 1.155 AND 2 7/8 BORE.
EXPENSIVE!!! ROGELIO

Honda Civic pistons from the eb1 eb2 series does the trick check though some are 71mm others are 73 both 29 mm compression height.
We use them with to build 45 inch 741 s.

71 mm with "that other brand" flywheels and rods for a long stroke, 73s for SS. You have to use the honda wrist pins and bush the rods
-no problem , we also use teflon buttons instead of circlips, just make sure you drill a small hole on the end of the button or the air in the in will heat up and force the button against the bore -melts the button and makes a mess. One of our guys used suzuki m/c pistons (from a katana I think) but he had to do some serious machining. This was for a race bike, the bike goes like hell.
