Searching the net, I came up with a few good reviews but they are so new that not much has been written as of yet.
According to Vech, they are his prefered replacement for the Michelin Macadam's (no longer available).
I hope to get them in during the next week. I'll post an update once I get some miles on them.
As for appearance, I must say that I like the bike better even though it isn't a period look.
Keep in mind that my previous tires were Continentals and the PO put a 3.5 on the front and a 4.0 on the rear so that was not the best initial set up.
I keep everyone posted on how they wear in.
I found these Avon AM26 tires that come in these sizes. The tire comes in a "universal" spec, so should work on the front or rear. The tires look a bit modern, but seem like they might be nice tires.

So. . . I'm thinking of a 90/90 18 on the front and a 100/90 18 on the rear.
I know Cheng Shin makes a tire that's 3.5 x 18, but I'm thinking the Avons might be a better quality tire, and a closer fit with the OEM recommendations.
Does anybody here have experience with these tires on an old bike?
Any other suggestions?
I know...I have only been riding bikes for 45+ yrs now. But they can get hard and even break down inside. 4-5 yrs is plenty for me cause there is only 2 of them on the road. Just buy a good quality tire for your Spirited riding. Never heard anything bad about any Avon tires.
