Looking for a pair of 24" x 2.125" tires, preferably black with no white walls, but I'm open to all options. None of the local bike shops have any in stock right now, and while I've seen a few different options on eBay and Amazon, I've grown a bit more... skeptical of buying from either site. Plus, I figured someone here might have some tires I haven't seen before, which would be nice.

I'm hoping to spend no more than $50 bucks, but if that's not doable, I also have some of the original parts from my 1950 Snyder-build Montgomery Ward/Hawthorne Dumpster Diamond and a couple other parts and pieces I'd be willing to trade, either separately or as one lot, depending on the value of the tires vs. the value of my parts. Among them are the original skip tooth sprocket, the original crank arm and hardware, the original seat, the original 26" wheel, a chain guard that I believe is for a 24" bike, as it didn't fit on my 26" frame, and 2 handlebars.

The handlebars with the white grips painted burgundy are from a 1979 Schwinn Fair Lady.
They are 26 inches wide from end to end, and they are 12 to 12.5 inches tall.

These handlebars with one green grip are about 24 to 24.5 inches wide, and they are 10 to 10.5 inches tall. There are also a few dents and some rust spots on the backside.

The sprocket and crankarm are both off the same 1950 Snyder-built Montgomery Ward Hawthorne, while the chain guard is possibly from a smaller, 24" wheel-size bike.
The sprocket is 7 and 1/8th inches wide from cog to cog.
The crank arms are 7 inches from the tip to the center of the crank.
The chain guard is 23 inches long, about 4.5 inches tall, and 1.5 inches wide.

The wheel is a 26 inch wheel from the same 1950 Snyder MW/H bike as the other parts, though I don't know if it's original to that bike. There are no rust holes from what I can see, and the red strips are even still somewhat visible on the rim. It has a New Departure single-speed coaster brake with a skip tooth sprocket. No idea if it's any good or not, but it does spin freely at least.

The seat is also off the same 1950 Snyder MW/H bike as the other pieces. It's pretty rusty, but I didn't want to throw it away asI figured someone might still want it.

These tires are for a custom ride/show-quality trike I'm building, so it's not a problem if the tires are fairly new and fairly common. As long as they're within my price range, in good condition and are the size I'm asking for, I'm open to all offers.
