1973 Shovel new build (2)
Rubber fetish. I just fitted the front tire. With the help of a couple of forks (as in cutlery)! Didn't even hole the tube either(!!) - thankfully (done THAT before too) . I get a buzz looking at old tymie tires like this Avon SM2. I heard they use modern rubber but hell, they look old and it gives me a buzz to look at that hatched rib set on the side, like it's the last resort to stop the bike washing away at the front and laying down..
