air head rim widths and Conti Classic Attack radials

I admit I am a Guzzi guy and know damn little about air heads. I am interested in the new "narrow" radials by Conti, and was wondering what rim widths they were made for. I read that many air head folks are running them, but I do not know what the stock rim widths were on those mid to late 70's/early 80's bikes.

Do you know?

Usually I go to Dennis Kirks web site for information on permissible rim widths. Seems they are the only retailers that publish this online (avon seems to be the only mfgr that does this). Kirk's website does not have any rim width info for this particular tire (it happens). So before I buy some to try on my 2.15"x18 rims on my Guzzi, I'd like to see what rims other folks are using...

Airhead wheels vary a bit. Most are either 1.85 or 2.15 on the front and 2.15, 2.50 or 2.75 on the rear.

According to the chart I have a 2.5 rim is standard for a 4.00 or 110 tire and 2.75 is standard for a 120
