    Does it run?

    On that White Honda Dream (ca 95?) do you have some sort of knee guards on it, or is that just a white piece of cardboard?

    I have been meaning to contact you about hiedeneau tires. Do they make a race compound/tread 2:25-17? I think the gazelles I have on my race c110 are causing poor handling in the corners due to the agressive tread on the sides.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    The Ossa hasn't ran in at least 15 years, or so I'm told. It does have spark though.

    No knee guards or shields on the Dream. Its Guzzi Stornello sign in the background.

    Heidenau does not have any race tires in the 17" size. They only have moped/scooter tires in that size and rated at 31 MPH.

    JackC - Check out www.treatland.tv and search for " 17" tire ". They have a TON of "scooter/moped" tires, and many are rated for some serious speeds. That place is my new favorite site for all things related to smaller bikes. Thats where I scored the stacks for the 20mm carbs. I'm probably going to try one of those "SAVA" tires next as they have 2.50x18...

    hahnda - Will we be enjoying pics of that OSSA being restored?

    YUCA, I bought a set of the SAVA tires (2.25-17)for my Batavus moped from Treats- they are good to deal with though, as an older guy, I don't understand all the hipster lingo. The Sava's seemed pretty sturdy, and ran a bit bigger than the marked size.
