Nope they're Shinko 240s. They get great mileage around home on the straight , boring, graph-paper roads I normally ride on, but on the dragon they were sketchy as hell. Handle for crap once you get any decent lean angle on them. Plus the old-style tread pattern has no traction at all in mud or snow. After I wear out this set I'm going back to something else.

Here's a link to the tires.

http://www.jpcycles.com/product/217-...FfE7Mgod1iMAIQ


Also the wood you see on the footpeg was just an extension I made out of a piece of firewood to get me home. The original aluminum ones were pieces of junk, and the steel ones I made out of a pair of bmx pegs were narrow enough that it killed my knees getting around the 6-gallon tanks and onto those narrow pegs, so I improvised. Nobody likes sore knees on a kick-only bike.

Awesome!
Great to hear things straight from the source for once. Lot of speculating goes on around here..

Nice old bike - being used as opposed to rolled out for admiration purposes then put away with another layer of polish. Not a "concocted" rat bike either.

From the tire link you sent:
"Shinko E240 Classic MT90-16 Front/Rear Tire
Fitment Note: For antique restoration purposes ONLY "
I take that to mean you're not actually SUPPOSED to ride on the things.

I figured you'd be lurking around here. Welcome to the madness, and post up a little more often!

I'd disagree - those look like a very older style of tire that were made for bikes back in the day. I'm surprised to see them, but something about the sidewalls suggests to me that they are made for motorcycles.

Already resolved - You are right but ever-so-late-to-the-game
