Does she need new shoes?

Does she need new shoes?

Lads I’m looking for a bit of help. I’m fairly new to biking and picked up my first bike yesterday. The guy I bought if off said it was rarely used. The tires look like new but are very hard. A mate who is into bikes says they may need changing if the bike has been sitting unused for around 12 months.

Anyone shed a bit of light on this?

Panhead Chop

Panhead Chop

First ever hardtail Chop.

’52 Panhead motor,Paughco frame.

Few mixed vintage HD bits throughout,but mostly ‘custom’ bits.

It’s got an interesting history too.

Currently a non runner,but I’m sure it’s only through idleness for a few years.

Hopefully I’ll have it sorted easily enough,condition wise,it looks better in the photos than it really is.:thumbsup2:

I recently sold my 2011 VRF800 crossrunner as basically times are tough and it needed to go as couldn’t afford it anymore so I’ve now turned my attention to my 2000 Suzuki Bandit 600 which is in the shed and want to turn it into a cafe racer type bike with dropped handlebars, naked looks and a bit of a run around for me, ideally I want a bigger rear tyre like a 180 and an trying to find out which swingarm would fit a Bandit 600 to take a 180 rear tyre and also a wheel with discs and calipers, I remember hearing a GSXR 750 swingarm and wheel would fit but I’m not sure, does anyone have any info for me.

I’ve already taken the rear wheel off and dropped the handlebars, will replace the chain and sprockets, give it a paint job and replace the seat and it should be looking ok but I’m stuck on which swingarm and rear wheel to get to swap it over.
