Superhawk CB77 Tire Sizes?

Post by hefyjefy » Tue Jul 07, 2020 11:16 pm

I will need to replace the tires on my 1964 CB77, (not worn out, just v old).
According to the manual they are 2.75-18 front and 3.00-18 rear. However on the bike now are 3.00-18 front and 3.50-18 rear.
It would be good to put the correct tires on but I can't find any 2.75-18 tires.
Any thoughts on this? Is it common to have these (incorrect) tire sizes? Any recommendations on good replacements?
Many thanks,
Geoff

I use Heidenau tires. K33 3.00 x 18 rear and K39 2.75 x 18 front. You can Google search, but I just found them both at https://www.chapmoto.com/heidenau-k33-v ... 8-k3330018 and https://www.chapmoto.com/heidenau-k39-v ... 8-k3927518. I have never bought anything from this vendor, so I have no idea how good of a dealer they are.

I've used these as well, great tyres. Standard sizes are best. 2.27" front and 3.00" rear

2.27” front? No, 2.75” is stock.

Sorry, just a simple typing error, should have checked before I hit 'Submit' button. Standard front is of course 2.75" x 18", actually I've never seen a 2.27" tyre.

OK folks thanks! I will chase up some of the Heidenau tires, I wonder why I could not find that link online?
