20" gum wall tires, low to no tread, source?

I have a "Hyda-Bike" and the tires are shot, and I'm having trouble finding a 20" replacement with gum walls. Preferably low to no tread for city use.

Anyone know where I could find some?

Thank you,

philip

Continental makes a 20 inch gumwall that should fit your bike. Comet also does. Go the Bike Fridays web site and look at their tire selection as the have most of the 20 inch tires available. The other good source is Bike Tires Direct which also has a web site. Roger

Must be a restoration rather than a rider.

I'm pretty sure Continental doesn't make a model with an old-school, unreinforced, thick gum rubber sidewall. Certainly none of the tires shown on the BikeFriday webpage are gum walls.

The Kenda K55 is a possibility, if you can mount a 20x1.75 (ISO 45x406).
