Here's something to think about. RatRodBikes forum member, olschbp, told me that a MT-90x16 tire will fit on these rims. That is a tire from a Harley Davidson! Note that bicycle tires are measured differently than motorcycle tires . . . something like the motorcycles use wheel diameter and bikes go by outside tire diameter. I want to find someone with a Harley that has whitewalls and follow them around until they need new tires. Even a bald Harley tire would last a long time on my Schwinn!

Keep in mind that the OCC bike uses a Huge seat post. If you care to see, I have pics that show how I modified the OCC seat post. I shortened the “sissy bar” and redrilled the four seat mounting holes. The seat now is almost an inch and a half farther back for more leg room.
