Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Comes down to personal taste. The girls bike with the yellow sign was at Memory Lane for sale. I didn’t buy it but it tempted me and the wife said she doesn’t want any more bikes. I bought the Hollywood for my daughter for Christmas a couple years ago and IMO it looks better with whites on it.

I've always been drawn to white walls with the chrome wheels versus black walls on chromes... I also like the red treads or the blue diamonds look pretty COOOLon some bikes.

Finally riding a big boys bike
I love 'em both! But I agree with @TieDye, black on painted, white on chrome.

I've been threatening to swap out the whitewalls for black on my '46 DX for months now, and I finally did this morning while home 'teleworking'. SO glad I did, what a difference! Swapping out that stupid fat modern seat for a more age appropriate Persons I had laying around helped, too.

On Training Wheels
From the view point of someone that doesn't fully appreciate them, I've put quite a few on this past year. I found on chrome fenders they washed out the look on a yellow bike but were pretty nice w/o fenders.
Its funny, Im of the 60's era and I like a tire with a red stripe... :)
I put a pair of red stripe tires on a green frame Schwinn Cantilever w/o fenders and I thought it was the best look ever.
As far as looks go, I guess it just depends.
Originality is different though. I'm glad I haven't caught the original tire bug....
I know it is an old thread, but where did you find red stripe 26 x 13/4 tires? It would be great for my yellow Typhoon
