After fitting an 18" rear rim, I bid and won a new pair of deserts on ebay last weekend for around half the price of a new set
Fitted the rear which was easier than i expected with its stiff four ply side walls.
Still finishing off the bike rebuild so not had chance to try it out yet but it looks handy enough
Note how low the tyre sits to the ground when on the centre stand? Its now a doddle to roll the bike back up onto its stand
