Hi,
What is the best reproduction tires and tubes to get that will look fairly period correct on a 1942 G519 Huffman bicycle.
Also, who is a good source for these?
Thanks, Mike

Hello;
Originally, the G519 are mounted with "U.S. ROYAL MASTER CENTIPEDE GRIP" (photos courtesy @izee2 )

The "U.S. ROYAL CHAIN" are superb but not me who am French it is not possible: buy, shipping and customs multiplied by X bikes...

So, i opted for tires that looked like "GOODYEAR AIRWHELL G3" , (the ones that appeared in the 30's), for 20 USD each .

I would love to have a pair of "CENTIPEDE GRIP", but hey, one day maybe...
