I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but a search for "27" proves difficult. Who still makes decent 27" tires? I know that Panaracers, Schwalbe Marathons, and maybe Continental Gator Skins are available. Anything else? This is going on an old Motobecane. Thanks.

Vittoria and Kenda also make 27" tires. Except for Panaracers, I can't vouch for what's good or not. I have been thinking of trying out the Vittorias.
There are some options here:

Bicycle tire companies?
IRC was the first to offer a 90psi 27" tire almost 40 years ago, and it enjoyed great success until the market shifted to 700c. They were still making the identical tire as recently as a year or two ago, and it was still very inexpensive by today's tire price standards.

These were recommended on here before, and I have a few. Seem to be pretty good, but I can't vouch for much, as I have not had them on the road, yet, as I am still in the middle of the rebuild.
