Default 7 spoke 18" rear rim, drum brake?

Just acquired a 1974 XLCH; it has a 7 spoke 19" front rim with 10' twin discs. The owner says it's off a Low Rider; he couldn't remember what year. Was there a matching 18" 7 spoke rear rim made, that'll take the stock drum brake? Bike currently has a Lester 16" mag on back and I'd prefer an 18" wheel...

Otherwise bike is stock with only 3900 miles on it. I'm going to slowly restore it, but I'd prefer the mag wheels and will keep the twin discs up front. I did start it at his place a year ago, so I know it runs OK

Yes I believe that Morris makes an 18" back mag and maybe Harley made one as well but it could have been from Morris also. Check on ebay
