Yep it's definitely a front tyre spelt "tyre" you have thereYes, an SM is what I thought was in the box. I have a spare front tyre now. Its good for now so I can move it around in the garage. I need to get the 750 up on the list for routine work...
Hi Baz, yes I would like it to look as original as possible, however paint is not going to be China Red as its too red for me. I am going with Candy Apple Red. I am probably going to get an Avon GP for the rear, like Rob has. At least I can move it around now. Wish I was sent the right tyres/ tires in the first placeYep it's definitely a front tyre spelt "tyre" you have there
The famous Avon "death master" as they are affectionately known
I believe they are made in a better compound these days but why do you want them?
Is the bike going to be 100% original?
It's looking great btw
I had one on my ES2 for a while. They do surprisingly well in the corners BUT i had a blow out and the tyre, for me at least, is dangerously un-rideable when flat. Those rigid sidewalls randomly wander all over the place. I have one going spare if anyone wants itI have the 400-18 Safety Mileage on the back of the 69 Interceptor. If you look at the profile it is rather square and although I no longer am
a foot rest dragger it does make you wonder about laying WAY over at the roundabouts. It also has the most rigid sidewalls on
any tyre I've ever used.
