recently bought a pair of panracer spike tyres off e bay
heres where it gets interesting!
they never arrived so i mailed them and was told to ring !!
so i ring , they tell me they were never sent !!!
so they tell me i will recieve them tommorrow !!!!
then they ring me back and ask me which tyres it was i won because they lost the order form !!!!!
so im trying to log on to e bay and in the meantime this guy is telling me that he needs to know which ones i bought because ................

SMOKE
DART
MAGIC

The Spikers are / were pretty sketchy on anything but heinous mud , look cool though. I'd nab the Smokes if I were you....

My vote goes for Smoke/Dart.

What sort of vintage are we talking? Are these the white ones?

rang them back.
the majics are sand with cream walls
the spike are black with cream walls
the smokes are all black
but now someane else is saying they dont have the smok/ dart combo
either holding out or the other guy was wrong
all NOS so i assume they are the "right" vintage

merlin cycles couldnt sell front white magic darts for £5ea a while back.. fast forward a few months & they sell £20ea on ebay... go figure!

a pair of smokes in front & rear wouldnt be bad :)

Used to like the Smoke lite comp - 1.9 for the rear.
Tried on the front aswell but nearly shat myself on too many occasions.
Hence, the Dart on front. A great pairing :)
