I'm struggling to find anywhere that would stock narrow racing tyres in the above sizes. I did want gumwall ones, but it's looking unlikely.

Any tips or directions for a pair of matching tyres?

I've got plenty of 650c tyres (tubs & rims too)...for recumbent handcycles :shock: Nothing skinwall, though I'm afraid. The last whitewall Vittorias went a few years ago...
Image
From R to L:
650c Vittoria Rubino Pro 23mm folding Black/black, (700c Zaffiro to match) £12 each
650c Conti GP 4000 23mm folding, black/black, (700c to match) £25 each

The others are Tufo Clincher tubs, tubs with a cleat on the underside to fit clincher rims:
650c C Jet Pro 19mm Blk/Red (700c to match) £22 each
650c C Jet Special 19mm blue/yellow £25 each
650c C Jet Elite 20mm black/black £30 each

All prices UK posted.

All the best,

Oh CR cycles sell the Michelin 700c x 20mm tyres too 8)

These are really strong and hard wearing and never punctured on mine even after a thousand miles.

I have a pair of NOS Avocet 700x20c skinwalls - if they sound good then feel free to drop me a PM.

I've dug the tyres out of the shed in case you are still interested.

Michelin Dynamics are good and CHEAP. I have 20s and 23s on two of my bikes. 23s look much larger than that though, more like 25.
