    27 x 1 1/8 (630mm bead seat diameter with a 28mm wide tire) was a common tire size on road bikes during that time period. You will find that 27 x 1 1/4 (630-32) tires are much more common in the 27" size these days. Assuming the frame and fork have the clearance, 27 x 1 1/4 should work fine.

    See this Sheldon Brown article for more than you really wanted to know about tire sizing.
