    Sorry I didn't see your message until today.
    My front tire is:

    The Shinko 777 is an excellent tire. Best handling tire I've ever had, and since the choices for white walls are pretty limited, this is a fine choice to have. You should be able to go wider or narrower a little bit to fit in your fender. A 100/90-19 will be a little less than 3/8" narrower than a 110/90-19. The height is the same so you won't have to worry about speedometer/odometer ratio changes. It looks like the Shinko 777 whitewall isn't available from my source in 110/90-19 but in the 100 width as you've already mentioned. Maybe someone else will stock it if it's made. I doubt that 3/8" will make any difference in the handling or appearance.

    The tires are Shinko 777 and I bought them here:
    SHINKO 777 CRUISER TIRES - American Motorcycle Tire

    Best price and free shipping.

    Hello. I saw your bike and love the look especially the white walls.
    I have a 2002 1100 Spirit (VT1100C) and am struggling to find white walls for the front.
    The specs call for a 110/90-19 front tire and all i can find in front white wall is 100/90-19.

    What is your front tire and what brand is it if you don't mind me asking.
