    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!

    Close ups would be great. That's an interesting bike.

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

    I'm certain these guys can help:

    Wow, the original tubulars?? Cool bike
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    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)?
