My Rambler originally had glue on tires. It seems they would be a pain in the butt. How taboo would be to replace them with wooden clinchers by Ghisallo in Italy. I plan to actually ride the bike and not put it on a wall. Other parts will not be original either as I do not have the original handlebars and stem or the original pedals. I live in a very hilly area and want to add a spoon brake so that would not be original either. I have been told I could learn to shift my weight forward and skid the rear wheel but that seems like you would develop flat spots on your tire. It appears that there is a large data base of talent here so any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Stutzman pair of rims are around $350.00 delivered. Ghisallo pair is around $450.00 delivered. The Ghisallo rims are lighter and stronger. They also come with a very professional finish.

The tire is marked: BRITISH PREMIER (made in Canada) 28 x 1 1/2 Too bad I only have one tire. The tread pattern is close to the common US made tubeless tire GIANT CHAIN TREAD

United States, Giant Chain Tread also produced tires that were clinchers, the Giant #79 for example.
