Anyone Running White Wall Tires on their Bobber Black?

Hi Gents,

Pondering white walls for the spring. I see some chaps are running them but standard Bobbers but is anyone running a set on a Bobber Black? And if so can you say photos and also details of what type etc?

Cheerio,

Roy

Not yet because I have too much tread on my bike. But there are pics here if you search. Here’s a link to Dennis Kirk; they’re selling Dunlop white walls for the Bobber Black: https://www.denniskirk.com/dunlop/cr...pfp540083.prdf

I have recently purchased some Avon Cobra White Wall's, they're currently in my garage and will be fitted in the next week or so, along with my Wunderkind rear fender kit! I'm buzzing as it's the look I always imagined when first setting eyes upon the Bobber back in 2017
I've heard nothing but good things about the Avon Cobra line, and I'm highly satisfied with the ones on my Bobber currently. Consumers tend to praise them for quality and longevity. I got them rather cheap as the old line is now being discontinued, and replaced with Avon Cobra Chrome, supposedly more hard wearing etc..

You can get White Walls in the new Chrome series, but they're more expensive. Metzler Marathon are another brand that my mate recommends, they do White Walls also. I like Avon on the pure fact that their tyres are manufactured here in the UK, which is rather rare in this day and age. British tyres for a British bike! (albeit the Bobber was put together in Thailand..)
I'll get some pics up ASAP for you Roy.

Thanks for that mate.

Looking forward to the pics.

I have been looking around and finding it difficult to find the Avon's in White Wall here in the US but will keep looking.

Cheerio,

Roy

Roy, I think motosport.com has Avon white walls. U.S. company founded in Washington, with admin offices in Oregon and warehouse in Va.

Thanks for that mate,

I will check them out. The more I think on it the more I'm liking the idea. Besides Charlotte will appreciated 'new boots' for Spring...

Cheerio,

Roy

On that site, Motosport.com, select your bike from the pull down menus, (street, triumph, year, model), then in the search box put in Avon Tires. Not sure what your tire size is (you have a BB, right?) but white walls show up when you scroll through the options.
