The standard fashion of the day was 4:00-19 Dunlop Trials Universal on the front and a 4:00-19 knobby on the rear.

I just go a couple of DVDs from a friend yesterday. They are old 8mm home movies of desert racing, scrambles and the Catalina GP. All from the early 50s. Absolutely wonderful film from back then. Great that they survived.
