Hi John

Just checked the tyre but don't see any E or DoT accreditation so may not be road legal :cry: I need to source another block tread 3.00x20 for my WDB40 at some point. Not sure what route to take now
Luckily, here in Texas I can register my motorcycles as classics. They no longer have to be inspected, and the TxDOT tax is much cheaper. That tyre is what I was looking for.

Hi John / Jeff

That's the one. Compared with other block tread pattern tyres (tires) that I've tried it works fine on the roads here in the UK. Not tried it off road

Thanks Steve! I will have to check them out, that is cheaper then relacing to a different size rim.

All back together, and running great. It starts easily, survived miles of ranch road, and a trip into town. I love the torque, and appreciate the simplicity compared to the OIF 71-75 models.

Also, when delivering the bike I noticed a can of BSA Oil. I wonder how old that is? The B44 owner used to race B50s in the 70's in California and El Paso. He has 3 B50s in addition to this B44. I will be looking into getting them running in the future.
