Esteemed fellow aesthetes, My Frejus track bike sports a pair of Vittoria Professional All Weather sew-ups that feature natural (off-white) sidewalls, and tread which is black in the middle and green on each side. The rear tire has developed a blister which I expect will explode shortly. (I may pump it up tomorrow evening to add to the patriotic fervor which is expressed around here by such noisemaking.) These tires have two important qualities. First, they look really great on my red and white bike with the green saddle and handlebar tape. Second, they aren't made any more. Vittoria does make green tread tires, but they have black sidewalls. Do any of you folks have one or two of these beauties you'd like to sell? Or does anyone know of a modern tire with natural sidewalls and green tread? None of the on-line places I've checked seem to have anything like them...
