This is probably a FAQ, but I am getting nothing searching the archives for many variations of: tubular gum sidewall advice recommend

So I will ask here: What's a good, affordable tubular tire that has a tan sidewall and would look appropriate on a mid-70s road bike?

I know about Veloflex Criteriums. I have a pair stashed for next season's road races. But I don't want to spend $150+ on a pair of wheels I might ride five times a year. I bought a pair of Clement Futurox tires at a local shop, but the basetape is peeling and the rim strip is so covered in latex that the glue won't soak in. They looked right tho, and they were affordable.

Any other tires you can recommend? This will be an occasional rider.

Thanks,
