Michelin World Tours are still available in 27 x 1.1/8" and 27 x 1.1/4" in Black and/or Amberwall (Skinwall or whatever you guy's call it) and 26 x 1.1/4's in Black !
Michelin Road Sprint 27 x 7/8" and Select in 27 x 1.1.8" and 1.1/4" still turn up from time to time though only a few places stock them anymore and most shops will tell you they are all no longer made.......and a lot of chin rubbing is experienced if asked.
