Wore out three sets of tires already!

The blackwall tire in the front is a "Cyclerama" and the whitewall on the back is a Goodyear. Both are terribly cracked and dry rotted. Had a hard time reading the tire info through the cracks. As i was looking atvthe front tire, I found a broken spoke wrapped around the axle and another one wobbling from the nipple. This may be a loooooooooooooooooong uphill battle. Rusty chrome, bent braces, relace the wheels, etc. besides all of the reflective tape that seems to be everywhere.It's an early 60's (61-63ish?) ladies Flightliner., model 4617. The tires look original, so check the stamped tire code for the year and quarter of manufacture (I explain how in the first post of this thread, in the section titled "The Bikes").
