    Hi Ken, excellent topic, tire safety should be first on any riders mind. I have a question about mounting tubeless tires on a 70’s or 80’s m/c with original OEM alloy one piece wheels if it is safe or unsafe. Original tires I believe were bias ply and were all fitted with inner tubes on these bikes during these years, spoked wheel or alloy wheel. Is the profile of the wheel where the tire bead meets the wheel different for tubeless vs tube type? How about the wheel profile of OEM fitment tubeless radial vs OEM fitment tubeless bias ply, is it safe to upgrade to radials? How about tubeless valve stem fitment on an OEM wheel that was originally fitted with inner tubes? If needed is it possible (or safe?) to remachine wheels to fit tubeless radial and/or bias ply tires and valve stems? When were tubeless bias ply, and tubeless radials first available? Thanks! Don
