Is this to old to post on here?

This is my 1889 humber 52". Does anyone know where I can get new solid rubber tyres for it?

I think you want the "Ancient and Pre-Historic" forum

Thanks for posting - hope you get it back on the road!

Wow - awesome. I really want to try a high wheeler, but they're a little scary.

I'm certain these guys can help:

So it runs on solid wood tires at the moment?
I saw someone use a black rubber hose, like steam hose, with a wire or rope in the center, to pull it together.
Or something like that.

Nice. When you get it going, are you going to add a roof-top carrier to your SUV to take it out to the bike trail (you don't want to ride through traffic, to get there, I presume)?
