    Building one that looks like this one, just 15 inch (instead of 16inch)

    cool looking bike to take a picture of
    too bad it is not possible to ride,unless of course the suspension/shocks are locked/welded SOLID
    in which case a 250 scooter would be capable of greater pace on a public rode

    You're wrong. That's a solid cafe racer, bub. It has rearsets.

    By the way, the rear on that 'cafe racer' is a 16, not a 15.

    How do you know it 'rides like a dream'?

    Don't you mean 'A dream that it rides'?

    Of course it rides like a dream, a dream is the only place anyone can ride it.

    Chopper guys in the 70's used to use bias ply tires made for vw bugs that they would overinflate. I think I have one buried in my basement somewhere. This is only marginally more dangerous than using a non speed rated, non load rated reproduction firestone, or using a car space saver spare.

    Since this is clearly an art installation and not any real motorcycle anyone would ride in any meaningful way, what about casting your own tires?


    pics or this bike doesn't exist.

    I think my brain just collapsed in on itself. I think I will need therapy for "Anker management".

    Yeah, go find a better way to kill yourself. If you think that your "inspiration" rides like a dream,..... with blown fork seals (probably from being slammed up on the bottom of the triple clamps on any bump larger than a pebble), no rear travel, and a frame that has no lateral support tying the rear together (guess this really doesn't matter since there is no way that this bike could go through any turn at speed tighter than a gentle bend)....that dream must be a nightmare of the worst kind.

    Hi All,

    I think your all getting away from the topic :-)

    I wanted help in finding 15inch tires, that has a vintage look to it, that is all !!!

    Whether you like the look i am going for, whether the bike rides like shit or whether I might kill myself riding it, really has nothing to do with this conversation…

    In other words... If you have something constructive to say about the advice i need on 15inch tires with a vintage look, please share… Otherwise, please spend you time on commenting other pages, not mine :-)

    You all have a nice day, keep riding and living life.
