What kind of tires shall we put on this beautiful '82 so that
Wendell can ride it?

Shinko 230 gets lots of votes.

Any more on the story of it only having 850 miles on it?

The Shinko 230 seem to be a good choice.
As for the story on the 850 mile '82, maybe the
owner can fill you in as I know nothing of it's history.
Thank you gents for your replies and Shame on me for
not using the search feature.
Best,
Phil

It's all good! The question was just a convenient excuse to post some pics of an excellent condition '82 with some eye candy in the background!!

And I am a fan of the Shinko 230's.

Yes, Shinko's are the only ones in the stock size. I bought Michelin Pilot Active and are bike rides and handles great but rear looks way too skinny
