Ask for Trials front tyres, trials bikes had a tread that wasn't too different to the Allen Scythe. A lot of vintage bikes had 21" wheels, the Vintage Motorcycle Club may sell replica tyres for these old bikes...

The proper tyres for an Allen Scythe were unique to the Allen Scythe I believe, as they had larger lugs on one side only.

Charlie , I believe older genuine speedway tyres had heavier lugging on one side , whether modern ones still have I don't know.

you can get Motorcross tyres used on that well known auction site , in very good condition for very little money the Mitchelin ones are terrific, with very chunky tread and very hard wearing, 21" is the size to look for,

Hi every body, .
Ive just taken possession of a pair of motorcross tyres size 90-90-21 via that well known auction site, cost 34 the pair and are in good condition. They are slightly larger than the original's and have really big lugs to the sides and middle.
Hope you all have Happy Christmas Smile Robin.
