We had a nice long ride this weekend and Pat shot a quick video of the electric start in action.
And will the 3" fit the worksman production forks(dual springer) and standard dropout without chain/clearence issuesWhat was the final consensus on the best tires for this model.. love the look and size of these
has anyone mounted these to the steel rims? I read the others are a fight to get on aluminum.
Best tires for the Aluminum rims?
I also use the 3" & 2.4" Vee Rubber pedal cab tires 65 lbs. pressure and unreal wear and performance. Load carrying is double any other tire I've found they are tough. Street tire it's my favorite. New Orleans pedi-cabs use them to haul huge loads of tourists over some of the worst city streets in America.Hi Troy,
Bumping up an old thread here. Guess I have been building bike for quite awhile, now. I have used the Coker tiresbefore but not the one shown in your link. The one I did use was difficult to mount and didn't handle well at all. I have been using the pedalcab tires from Vee Rubber. About as tough as it gets.
As far as 3" tires, real 3" tires as some only claim 3" and are still 2.125, are a tight fit on the forks. Really too tight. I can measure a set later today.Fits on standard beach cruiser rims. Great for customizing your cruiser. 26 x 2.35 All Black Wire Bead Tire.www.ebay.com
Tom I get me hackles up at the mention of Coker lol. Though he seems to have found a niche market for many years in the classic tire reproductions arena and kinda' has the market sewed up & tied with a bow for show bikes that don't get rolled except to load onto a trailer.Come on Rick, we are grown ups here. (x-rated mature subject matter).
Pat's post included an Ebay link (rc) that's a great price shipped on the 2.35" which is what I use on the front of my bikes. The 3" i just do a 3" Vee tire Flame tread search. Don't use pedi-cab in search. Vee rubber is a Thai company and the cab thing is big over there as well, NOLA tire in New Orleans started private labeling tires for the pedi-cab market in New Orleans and several years ago they gave me the specs on the load ratings etc. If the Vee Rubber tire is labeled a 65 lb. max pressure and is Flame tread pattern that's the correct tire description. Junky rusty bike on E-bay usually has the best shipped 3" price on these tires. If I can find those tire specs I'll post them here. They are not DOT rated tires but are directional mount.Do you have a direct link to the vee pedal cab tires? I cant seem to find that "pedal cab" type.
