    I'm not sure what brand they are. I think they were a buy it now item on ebay. If you do a search for "balloon tire" I think you can find them. They come in red or white.

    I finally got the spokes for the front wheel and laced in a rechromed New Departure front hub. I've started building the truss fork and I bobbed the original rear fender. The Torrington stem will need some TLC but its a good solid starting point. I have the "tank" halves cut out and sanded but, I'm still not 100% sure which direction the final tank construction will go. Here are some detail shots of my progress so far.
