Avon speedmaster up front. 275<350X19. On the back 450X18 AT Goodyear??X18? If you are looking for some BITE, Continental 130/80X18 out back. I could be wrong about the numbers (maybe) I'm sure I will be corrected.

Thank you guys , i appreciate all the info. It makes sense to just use a tube, i was under the impression i needed a special sidewalled tire that i couldn't find. Not sure on the borraines, i need to go see them , he runs a brit bike repair shop and does great work on Nortons, Triumphs and BSA's He did a lot of work on my 71 Bonnie
