Davy me boy,
I recently got one of them there HopDeGrass tires in
great condition for $75 + $13 shipping off eBay. I liked
the fact it didn't come with the free stuff in the
middle. Do you know how hard it is to pull all that out
of the tire without hurtin' the bead? If whoever gets it
really only wants the tire I'll give'm a fair price for
the stuff in the middle though. All they have to do is
post here and we can do business.


If you're looking for a 3.50x18 Goodyear Grasshopper,
this is a little pricey, but comes with a free rim,
spokes, and hub. The HopDeGrass tires are hard to find
these days.

The tread on the tire is only visible in the last photo,
but it looks pretty good. If I were interested, I'd ask
questions about the tire condition.


Is it useable for an unrestored? Yes, but at this price +
shipping? If you were to buy it for a restoration you'd
still have to unlace it, send the spokes out for cad
plating, re-assemble it and true it. If you already have
the hub a rim from Jim's HD and a set of stainless steel
spokes (bead blasted to make them look like cad) would be
