    The originals are R2s or rice paddy tires and as far as traction, they were horrible.

    I was PMed and asked about paint codes-

    Orange, acrylic enamel.


    The blue was mixed by eye, I have no codes, but if you take off the little compartment door just below the fuel tank they can use that to match.

    It looks nice but I'd be concerned with the tubes that were brazed and then ground down. The brass will not hold the same pressure as the original steel. You usually have to have the brass 3 to 4 times thicker to hold the same pressure. Hate to see you have a leak after all that work.

    They are the grab handles mounted on the rear fenders. With the braze they will be plenty strong.
