I found these tires with a 1970s look... I do not know if you've seen them before? It looks a bit like Bridgestone tires...

That front tire tread design looks a slightly bit different than the Dunlop F11.... ?  i like that tread design of the tire you posted, Gerard.

here's the F11, pic taken from Yamiya website.

Oh yes, they are very rare... they have to be restored with a product deglacant for the rubber and keep them carefully !!

Even if your bike stays static because the tires are too old to roll, you can renovate their appearance with a rubber cleaner, in fact this product cleans and restores the original black appearance of the tire and it finds its grip original. They sell aerosols specially for the rollers rubber of printers.
But you always have to make a try before on an old tire to throw away !!
