Knobbly tyres for Moto guzzi V7 classic

Hi,


I am thinking of making a Moto Guzzi classic into a bit of a fake scrambler...in the same way Triumph changed their Bonneville into a scrambler. Does anybody know where I could buy some knobbly tyres for the bike; that would still fit under the front mud guard?


Thank you.

chances are that yo will have to move the guard up even if its only a couple of inches ,unless you spend a long long time trawling to find sizes if made that might clear it

 

Yeah...I have done some more research and it isn't looking promising...never mind; back to the drawing board! :-)

Since you are going for the look, there are dual sport tyres that are more knobbly which will fit


The Pirelli Scorpion Trail

which appear to come in the right sizes of 100/90 x 18 and 130/80 x 17.

Naaa...don't go to the expense of knobbly tyres! As you want it to have the look of a fake scrambler (presume you don't want to really scramble) just chuck loads of muddy water at it ..and your self for that matter ...Hey presto! Scrambler bike and person, also for subtle effect just say Wild and Woolly every so often.
