    Only as an option for looks, they are not recommended for general use or consistent speeds over 50mph. And they are not a 'good looking" tire

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    'Cool' is subjective so I'm not taking your word for it. Must not be very many cool bikes in Denmark then.
    And no, there are no more cool ideas for a 15 on a bike.

    Coker Tire makes some vintage 15" tires but since you never said what bike you are dreaming of building I couldn't tell you if they will fit or not.

    Im building cafe racer out of a 1981 Honda CB750K… I looked at the Coker tire website and could not find any vintage motorbike tires in 15 inch, so any more assistance from o1marc would be nice :-)

    No - it's an 18 on the rear. If you have a 15 we need pics because it isn't stock....

    By the way, I have a 15" car tyre on the back of my Intruder....



    Handles good.....seriously.

    As hillsy said, original wheel size on a 750k is 18".

    The POS you linked to has a 16".

    What wheel did you put on there to make it a 15"? What did it come off of?

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.
