The floorboards are aftermarket ,not factory items. There are several different manufacturers . Posting a pic would help us give you some ideas of where to start. 8-)

Why not make some up using rubber mats cut to size? You may have your choice of colours

My Ace sells rubber runners that look like most board rubber long grooves..buy a foot or two and cut to shape..helps the cut some paper to fit the boardsand use it as a pattern on the runner..measure twice cut once. then contact cement.

I bought a couple of Harbor Freight rubber mat squares (with slanted diamond threads, and, using my remaining floorboard as a template, cut a matching set for the 82 trike. Used Super LocTight spray glue to mount 'em. Got 'em for under $3.00 and was able to 2 sets - 1 front, 1 rear per square.
