I have the Avon Speedmaster front and SM rear on my 1976 Honda CB550. I did also consider the Dunlop K70's. These two get my pick for vintage looking tires. Although, I have modern tires on my 2005 Bonneville. For some reason I don't mind the look of modern tires on the Bonneville, but I would only put the Avons on the Honda. I do think the modern tires are probably much safer, but I have never had any issues with the Avons. I love the old tread patterns. Its those small details that can make a modern bike look a little more vintage. I do like the look of those Firestone Champions, but they may look better on a custom bobber or stripped down cafe racer rather than a mostly stock bike.
