    So the rear tire has a bubble in the bead...they were pretty bad to begin with anyway. Need some input...

    Do I go with the gumwall tires again, solid black, or go big with red?

    I could see some big black tires with white lettering. Like Thickslicks, or Maxxis Monorail, or Kenda Slant Six.

    I would do black walls or solid walls vs gum walls. Maybe something with more aggressive tread like brick beach cruiser tire. [​IMG]. There are some reds out there.

    Have been busy moving but have some tires and a chain guard coming my way. Will probably have this build finished by the end of next week!

    Found this and mounted it up as well...

    Went bold with tire choice. Hoping to have some time to work on it this weekend. Finally feeling like it's getting to the 'finished' phase

    95% there. Some small touches and a few tweaks and it'll be "done"
