I'm looking for a 19" and an 18" for my SR500.

I know they are not available, but if anyone has a lead...

She's looking a little snazzier than last year. Where's your build thread again?

I looked all over on the web, no 180s. You could try the flattrack, AHRMA, and vintage racing forums to see if anyone has a set there.

I gave up and went for the K70 on the front and a Duron HF308 on the rear. I would have done K70s both ends, but I am hoping the Duro will take the street wear a bit better than the K70. The Duro has the Pirelli MT53 tread pattern, so it has the vintage flat track look. The Duro 4.00-18 is a 4 ply, but the 4.00-19 is a six ply. The Duro wasn't available anywhere in the 3.50-19 (better handling on the street) so I only did the rear. I am considering going to an RD400 front rim which is 18" because then I could run 4.00 front and rear. I know it is against the traditonal 19s, but the actual flat track tires are big bucks and technically aren't DOT legal.

Nice looking old DMR Ossa Stiletto there! Those are going for a small fortune now.

I used to have a small picture of one of those and a shot of Danny Hockey sliding a Stiletto, from a brochure, on my wall when I was in college. Wasn't too big on Ossas, but flat track was way cool. I was riding a Bultaco at the time.

My SR is partly inspired by that look.

Thanks, glad you like the picture. Also it's very hard to see in the picture and I guess I should have taken a close up picture, but near the upper left hand side of the side number plate you can barely make out some writing. That would where Dick Mann signed the bike. Really neat.
Also in the back round you can see some of the other bikes that my friend has.
