    At first glance , "Tasty" then spotting the fatal flaw. Why ruin a good bike with Model "A" capable tires ?

    Far too many follow the crowd with those tires. :baldy
    Fortunately tires are an easy fix if the owner actually rides the bike much. :ricky

    This Model A has better tires than that bike.

    Well, there you go, the reason all Model T and A clubs warn you never to put Firestone motorcycle tires on your car!

    I realize you're kidding but putting motorcyle tires on the front of Model A hot rods actually was/is a thing... and many warnings against it exist.

    Nice bike, but they can't be the most confidence inspiring set of tires, I imagine?

    Weird, right? It's a cafe *racer* and tires like that defeat the goal. Where do those tires fit? Bobber? Cruiser?
