If you decide to go blackwall I have a pair of 2.1 kevlars that have been used once.

Hmmm not sure if blackwall were a 90/91 version or not. Might be worth searching for pics of Greg Herbold, the Yeti team etc. For a real retro look you should try and find some super tacky white compound ones but that may be like trying to find the holy grail!!

Yes, they are folding 2.1 kevlars.

The Onza Porcupines came in both skinwall and blackwall in 1990/91, but only a 1.95 labeled size. The Porc IIs were the ones that came in the 2.1 size.

I think that I should be looking for 1.95 porc 1 skin or blackwall then correct? Porc 2 would not work for a 90/91 build or would they? Thank you
