Default I once had Oil Spill tires too.......

I once had Oil Spill tires too- my new name for Beach Tires-

I was calling them Old Indianapolis Wasp tires-

Still have the same bike I first built w/the same 66 motor from '08 but it's changed incarnations a bit, including the alloy 34 sprock directly bolted to a high flanged flip/flop hub

the orange 50 has a custom GT 39 front sprock, drilled and hole enlarged as the back motor drive.

The silver 66 will do 35 but cruises best between 25-3o. At 62 I don't want to fall and either of these builds could do with a tamer motor.

Don't get them out much anymore, but great weather now- riding my road bike on the Baldwin Path in Jacksonville- beautiful!

below- micargi 66 with "oil spill" tires, then 1.75 street and finally 27 x 1 1/4 wheels
