OK, I got new dirtbike tires! check it out. well well worth the $245.00.
they are 1000000% better in the mud, dirt, and grass than my old ones. the offroad performance with them is phenomenal.

Very nice tires. Those old ones look ~like they were memt to be kind of a cross between dirt and street bike wheels.

yep, that's my sniper.
the old ones were worn out dual sport tires/trials tires, which are a cross between dirt and road tires.

frank, I think you told me about it before. post some pics!

than what are? :x
this bike is reliable as hell. try riding them before you judge them. maby the modern ones are not the best, but form what I have gathered, this was the best/fastest of the 175cc bikes in the 70's.
