Hi,
I am building a basket case 500 Goldie on which I plan to fit 325x19 front tyres, with 350x19 on the rear. Does this sound ok, and can anyone recommend any particular tyre for general use. (I wont be racing or going particularly fast)
Thanks in advance

Pretty much anything you can find.... These sizes seem to be getting rare?
I stay with Avon, as they seem to keep us old bike riding people supplied with what was stock when new..? but they don't change the technology...

If you want newer tech., look to other companies? But, profiles of the tires seem to be getting lower...

you might try Burton Bike Bits,they have a fairly good selection of older styles. Good luck.

I am just finishing my Gold Star build, and will be using Avon Speedmaster ribbed front and Speedmaster rear in 19" It is not a resto, more of a cafe racer Clubman.
