I'm wondering if there's a source for these hard rubber tires with metal hoops inside. I have an early circa 1900 children's velocipede I'm working on and the tires are completely missing from the large wheels in back.

@Krakatoa , tires are mounted on on the velocipede tricycle using the method demonstrated in this video. Anyone with a tire machine, rubber and wire should be able to help you out.

Here is one resource from the Wheelmen newsletter that many of the Wheelmen use. They have excellent quality rubber for tiring, I have used it and am very satisfied. If you are a member of The Wheelmen look in your Wheelmen directory, possibly there is a Wheelmen in the Vermont area that can help you install the tiring.

Wheel Wrights have rubber tiring and will install it. I live near Langcaster, PA and have taken a bike to a wheel wright in that area. If you are near the Amish there should be a wheel wright serving the wagon and the black tiring is still used on there wagons.
