Insane Avon 3 x 21 Tire


Does anyone know the scoop on this Avon tire? It reminds me of an Avon "Speed" that I saw once on Ebay but regardless of its rarity this tire looks super rad with the huge Avon script and looks perfect for going flat out on the salt! (photo from a 1999 Classic Bike mag)



Ok, thanks to Jason this tire is an Avon 50s/60s Salt Flat Racing tire and the two photos above came from AAOK's auction where this buy-it-now price is $1250. Yikes. Very awesome tire with cool tread pattern nonetheless!!!
