Remember when you saw a motorcycle for the first time? Can you see the rider, oozing cool in sunglasses and a leather jacket? Can you hear the engine, revving to catch the attention of everyone nearby? And remember the bike? Its shiny chrome trim, snazzy paint job on the tank, the raised white letters on the motorcycle tires? And, oh, those tires. They gave the motorcycles of the 60’s, 70’s, and early 80’s that signature flare while standing still and some flashy spin when running. Those tires added to the cool-ness of the bike and the rider, and became a signature look for the motorcycles of the time.
Although not as common on today’s bikes, raised white letters on motorcycle tires are still available from manufacturers such as Bridgestone and Dunlop. Current versions of these classic tires are way better than the tires made back then. Today’s motorcycle tires have vastly improved and innovative technology that provides for increased traction, optimal tread patterns, and reduced heat friction. In turn, you’ll experience better grip, reliable performance and enhanced endurance. The result is safer, longer lasting tires with all of the great design elements you remember.
This vintage style is perfect for your classic restoration of a 60’s, 70’ or 80’s ride or for a sporty update to your more recent touring bike. The crisp white letters on the side wall are raised to allow for that *POP* from the rich black tire body, and are the defining characteristic of the design. A simple tire change may be all you need to make huge difference in the appearance of any motorcycle, and that retro look you’re going for is easily achieved with this choice of tire.
