original tires on a '77 newport

I know that there probably were a variety of tires taht came on stock puch's over the years (right?) But the '77 Newport I just got has 386 miles on the odometer and I am curious if this is accurate. The bike doesn't start yet but the tires don't look too worn at all. They are Cheng Shin's (I think that's the name). I figure if these ARE the original tires then that 386 is probably correct. Ya feel me?

those tires are not original

yep they are replacements

Re: original tires on a '77 newport

The original tires on a Newport were made by Semperit, and they had really narrow whitewalls. Mine came with the original front tire, but it was completely rotted. I replaced them both with Michelin Gazelles. Nice tires. Peace. Jerry.
