Tires are Shinko Super Classic 270 ...

The ones I can find are rated for front tire only, and they don't seem to have a rear wheel version of the tire. Then again, the tread looks symmetrical and I don't see any reason to have any problems running them on the rear as long as the weight rating is good. They are four ply too so should get some miles on them.

PS - I wouldn't think traction would be all that great off road, but I'm thinking us road cruisers would be happy with them mounted up.

I saw this rig in person, it is magnificent. I could have been talked into leaving the GearUp and taking it instead, but my Retro would have gotten jealous...can't have that...

James, outside of the tires, bumpers and sidecar mirror, what else made that rig pop at you like that? Just curious as I will be getting my retro over the weekend and trying to get ideas :)

New, shiny, just grabbed me, but I already have one with everything that one has, but the tires...it is pretty much what a lot of Retro owners turn their's into over time, all it needs is an HD cop seat...that one is over done just enough to not be tacky, close, but not quite... I just liked it, and took the gear up home anyway, time for a main stream Ural for me. I still have my 2 odd balls...
