    Anyone using this tire for there TOC 1890,s bikes Specialzed Fatboy 29x1.7 or 622- 45 Black . Tire has no tread and to me looks like some thing that would have been used at that time . They fit original wood rims that are a Dunlop style rim or Stutzman new wood rims with or without the metal liner which I have used a lot. Does have some writing on it which can be blacked out with a marked pen no problem. Also price is right. P4094262.jpg P4094261.jpg P4094260.jpg

    I think @Joe Buffardi used them on a bike in the past. Too bad they don't make a cream.

    Tires go on Stutzman wood rims just fine. I also have them on original Dunlop style wood rims that are the same as the Stutzsman rims as far as size. This style rim and tire was used more in Canada than the US. which used the more common single tube tire. The single tube tire are a pain and expenisive in my book.

    I really like those and I would have been upset to see these now after the ordeal getting Linus tires on my CB Italias, but they're too wide for my Iver, anyway (don't tell me if they come in narrower—I don't want to know!). Love the two tone wood rims, BTW!

    They come in 700x45, 700x35, and 26" also. The logo on the sidewall can be completely removed with 0000 steel wool and acetone.
