Do you mean 120/90-17? That's the stock tire size on the front 750ACE.
If so, no they don't make that size in a whitewall.
Dunlop makes a 140/80-17 in a whitewall which is slightly wider with a slightly lower profile than the120/90-17. It's the stock tire on the 1100 Aero's that used to come with whitewall tires.

A lot of people have used the Dunlop #D404, 140/80-17 whitewall on their 750ACE with some minor modification to the front fender so it doesn't rub.......

I know there are "inserts" in that size. They're made in Thailand.

No. Nobody makes one, at least that I have found. The closest you will come to is the D404 Dunlop, and it IS a damned good tire:

Many years ago, when I worked at car dealership, they had a company come in and paint the whitewalls on. It was a special paint with an applicator. Look into some shops that specialize in detailing cars. Maybe they can help you. Food for thought.

Default Phil, pls elaborate

Hi Guys,

Phil, I just bought these tires and dropped my 99 Shadow Ace and the tires off today to have them put on. Guy called me at closing to say the front fender is rubbing; I was planning to ride this sucker tomorrow on a charity ride. Can you elaborate on the front fender modification your mention here?(I have not seen the tire mounted yet) Hopefully can get it done fast!!

Thanks Phil!!

Best regards, Don Riegle
