Wow, you are a purist, mine came with brand new, modern Michelins, and they are really good. Unless you just intend to show your bike Id fit more modern rubber.

Yes I'd like to keep the originality, but for the tires I can make an exception...as far as possible ... in Italy every 2 years you must to pass the motorcycle control in a specialized workshop and you must have the requirements according to the registration document...but some workshop closes one eye ....
Which Michelin have you fitted?
