I was just wondering...
What type of tires are on a muscle bike?
Slicks, dirt, street?
Some had a rear slick with a street front, which seems to be a preferred look.
Others had a street tread on both wheels, but I've seen people put a knobbie on the back.
Depends on th ebike and age - a lot more originaly came with treaded 'Tractor grip' or similar tread tires, than slicks, although the slick is often preferred for the look .
As long as it looks good, and big n littles, I just build em , lol.
Any group buys out there for "slicks"
anyone know of any 24''x3'' oldschool flat rolling suface tires?
somthing looking like this
Jerald Slick does a 24". It's 2.125, but FAT
but the contact patch looks more like 2" than 3 , correct me if iam wrong ... if i understand , there is trully no fatter option in this style of tires bummer
heya crash do you know if jerald is doing anymore 26 inch slicks i have a bike that they would look good on in fact did they ever make a 26 inch slick im not sure but the street slicks i have are no good the minute i hit loose dirt i feel like i am ice skating with bowling shoes ( figuratively speaking lol)
Kendra makes a nice option

Yeah! profile and size is right ,looks to have enough rubber on it to sand it to a flat top slick
(edit) humm 53..$CA with the shipping, and would need to work on it afterwards no deal
The trikes in this build-off have got me to thinking, what if you put drift trike wheels on the back? Some fancy gearing would be needed to get the wheel speed up, but that might be worth it to do burn outs and doughnuts!
i did it few years ago ,its awesome , always wanted to start a new sport (real drift trike) i have the v2 planned up with upgrated geometry , might actually be my next build
it needs to be very sturdy yet very light , and don't ask about how i did the drift tire , secret, sorry
The last one in that video was wild, you sir, are a heck of a rider.
Anyone have an idea what the run numbers were with the 346 tires volume wise? Anyone know a way to find out...
Wonder if tooling up for oversized oldschool wall styled slick is reasonable vs market.
iam pretty sure that if they look right and sell for reasonably cheap lots of people would buy them , i know basic machined mold for mini skis are in the 5grands , i can imagine injection mold costing alot more , but what do i know.. after all if its slick and round , should not be that hard to machine , just takes huge round chunks of metal
The tooling is the easy part for me it's considering the production run cost to get jobbed. I was asking because those were not made inhouse was wondering what numbers would take to approach the project realistically. I'm sure for 2.75+up vintage looking slicks would so well juat clueless as what a run would cost.
making the mold in house is a great idea if possible ,but making a good rubber compound and having a injection moulding machine , i would leave it to a well established companie .. idk about numbers sry
Making a mold now is only a digital file I agree entirely with you re having a production run made by a jobber.
