    Question Front Tire

    I have a 1979 CB750K. Stock. I wanna replace the front tire which I believe is 100 90-17 and the one I'm looking at replacing it with is 150 80H-17. Will this tire work on the front or do I have to find another 100 90-17? Thanks

    OEM wheel on '79 is 19 inch..............has the narrow forks too which will really be crimping that tire width. Wheel is way too narrow for that tire too, only 2.15"

    100 up to 120 front works fine.

    Will a 16x3 rim with a 5.00-16 tire fit on the front? Or do I need new forks?
