New guy with a question

750 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Terrence
Hi I'm new here and thought I should introduce myself and pick your brains while I am at it. I have a 70 BSA firebird with clubman bars homemade rear sets. Motor is bored .040 over but otherwise stock. My question is I want to put a new rear tire on and would like to go wider. I was thinking along the lines of a Avon super venom. How wide can I go with the stock swingarm, rim and chain configuration? Any help would be apreciated.

the avon super venom is a good street tire. I used to be of the wider is better mentality also. I now know the error of my ways. if it's the look you want then go for it. unfortunately I can't help with the actual width you can use. aaron may have some insight.
