Nope, just a chain drive. Funny thing is the front still has the nubs on the edges of the tread. Would have went with Wally world replacements but none of them around here have whitewalls and their "cruiser" tire is only 1.75".

Like the looks of these "brick" tires and the fact that the tire is more rounded, the ones I have now have a sharp edge to the tread and it always made me nervous going around corners at speed.
When I was a kid I'd come across a "slick" that I had on the back of my 20" bike, that thing was flat as a board and wouldn't corner at all but it sure looked cool. lol
