    What I find difficult is the many negative comments that have also been posted on my request to find a tire for my choice of bike..

    Changing looks on a stock bike, is at the end of the day what creative people want to do.

    Some are more successful then others and some find one look more tasteful then another, but I don't see any reason why anyone would be rude about it, instead of advising me, with a qualified answer…

    Call my bike a Cafe Racer, a bobber, a chopper… I really don't care if it has a name, which fits, the whole idea of changing is customization and creating a look that i like :-)

    I thank the people who have taken the time to write something of value…. Top the rest of you, god luck with you own projects, personally I do not wish to sink to your level.. Where I come from, we have dignity, respect and pride… (Something that most of the world agrees that the US lost, some while ago)

    OK, You can't get a Firestone for 'the look' you want so you'll have to either get something else or get sensible and build a bike that can be ridden not posed on.
    If your making an art project it's a completely different matter but you keep calling various bobber/brat/ lowrider style bikes Cafe Racers.
    If you want to ride at a reasonable speed and not fall down on first proper bend, you have to do certain things, 15" rear wheel isn't one of them.
    CB750 motor is too wide in stock chassis with 19/18 wheels, various parts drag on the floor.
    Lowering rear end a substantial amount is going to make things drag on the floor a lot easier so your chances of falling down are much higher.
    Using 'clown shoes' reduces your chances of staying on the road
    As far as I'm aware, using car tyres on motorcycles anywhere in Europe will get you a ticket at best and bike towed to impound for being in dangerous condition
    The other reason 'we' don't like this srt of stuff, you may be aware of the limitations and risks, but the retard you sell it to probably won't and you won't be liable when he or she gets hurt (even though you should be)

    So calling us pussies, would be slightly wrong.

    you started it not me. so don't try and "turn it around" so you look like the injured party. I don't care about what tires you use, I do care when someone insults this country ( yes you can insult this country if you are from this country, that I can live with). wasnt Denmark known as Sweeden's ugly sister for a while?
    I like my shocks like I like my women. Cheap and Chinese.

    I did a Google search of Danish women and you are correct. I'm ready to pack my bags and bike and head that way.

    I guess you can find 'valley commando's' anywhere if you try
    Stick to asking simple questions about 400f

    After six pages a tire discussion disintegrated into a discussion about the whether or not a country's women are on average smart and hot, truly ugly chick pics, a healthy dose of nationalism on both sides, and the OP deciding that swapping the 18" rear wheel back on might not be such a bad idea. I declare this thread a win.

    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)

    FWIW I think the smart upgrade would be an interceptor VF750R rear rim on a cbF swingarm (preferrably a cb1100F one since they are boxed alloy). You can do the whole setup as a bolt on and you end up with the capability to run a 140 to 150 rear tire instead of the inadiquate 120 these came with stock.

    H-D must like you as they just came out with 15" wheels on their new bikes. Tires will probably be $300

    Getting 15" tyres is not a problem - finding vintage style ones is the original question....and no one makes them.
