For those that want some period correct looking and reasonably priced tires for your cb200, I found some vee brand tires offered by ajtirestore.com look under vintage.

Back in the day, my CB175 came from new with Japanese Dunlop Gold Seal tyres, which were soft and gripped very well, even in the cold and wet. A definite step up from earlier Japanese tyres, which had no wet grip whatsoever.

I fitted these tyres to my CB175K4, for the period look, and they work fine in the dry. I haven't tried them in the wet, apart from a couple of miles in torrential rain on the way home from the MOT station last month.

These tyres are by Maxxis, although I reckon Chingshen ( rudely (and probably unfairly these days) nicknamed Cheap **** ) do some similar ones.
