It all depends on what you want. If you just want to restore it to original then there are tyres available for the rear and often you see 20" trials tyres for the front on ebay.

If you want to ride the bike in classic trials with some hope of being competitive or enjoying yourself then most people change the rims to 21"/18"

The Montesa Cota 123 and some early 172s have the same combination and is truly a pain in the a&^e

Some bloke on FB found some NOS. I'll have a look.

Guy's name is Fran├žois Stauffacher. Look here: https://www.facebook.com/francois.stauffacher?fref=ufi

You could also ask Yrjo Vesterinen. Yrjos just done up a 125 Sherpa for his daughter: https://www.facebook.com/vesty52?fref=ts
