Hi,

Here I am again with the latest evolutions of my soco cafe racer.
I changed the tires (for bigger ones 😉 ) and painted my brake calipers.
I also changed discs and pads, redid the brake fluid and also the fork oil. As a result, the 4 wheel axle bearings were replaced.
Make way for images that will say more than word :

The tires are Pirelli Angel City in 100-80-17 for the front and 130-70-17 for the rear. I've seen Michelin Road Classics of the same dimensions on a Maze custom super soco (french preparator /customizer) and they also look pretty good (a bit more old school cafe racer in style, but my Pirelli tires were already ordered, too bad it will be for the next time).

Regarding the brake calipers, I used the fluorescent yellow Foliatec kit n°2184.

The kit is sold with 1x brush (I didn't use it), 2x brushes for painting, 1x small jar of white primer paint, 1x small jar of neon yellow paint, 1x small jar of hardener (kind of varnish to mix with the paint to harden the paint) and 1x spray cleaner.

Regarding the painting, I had to hurry a bit (it rained all the time I could take care of it, so I did all that in the living room, for 4 days). So I cleaned the stirrups well (it takes a long time), then I directly put the primer on the black stirrups (2 coats but I should have put 3 better), then I painted with the hardener/paint mixture. I put 3 coats (from my experience, the coats probably too thick on my part took a long time to dry, more than a day and more!).

For the rest I had the idea of ​​making a seat cowl shell but there I hesitate.

Awesome!!! 

Did the 130/70 17 fit in the original rear fender without modifications?

Regards

Hello @PAk_sp,
Yes, the rear tire 130/70/17 is mounted without modification (juste my fender is cutted for better style and a minimum protection for shock absorber).
It's ok for for the passage of the belt, rear plate support, arm and fender, all pass OK.
For info, my belt is 15mm (opposite 12mm origin) for better resistance and longevity (it pass just, 1mm more and doesn't mount).
Same for front tire, no problem for mounting 100/80/17 directly.

@seriousmanfr That is pretty cool.

I used the same size, but more of a mixed tire:
