Aaaah, the never ending search for that perfect matching part for your bike. Which includes tires!
A few years ago they were hard to find but with the rising demand for classic looking tires (admit it, they look sexy) manufacturers are now producing a variety of beautiful classic looking tires.
Here are a few options.
