Odd size tires

I have a lightning handcycle. It's a lean-tilt handcycle trike. The
two rear tires are in desperate need of replacement and I can't find
them ANYWHERE! Does anyone have any idea where I can get 18"x1"
(19-400) tires and tubes? I'm desperate!

Paul: I have no checked but the best results I get are from the
Hostellshop.com
Might give it a try.

I've tried to contact these guys to no avail. I got in touch with Dr
Jon Franks with Lightning handcycles and apparently I've got a very
early model. It seems that these 18x1" (19-400) tubes and tires may
not be made any more. If anyone comes up with a dealer who has them I
will be happy to buy in large quantities from them. I'm going to keep
looking.

Don't know about the tyres, but ICE specify the tubes for their 406 wheeled
trikes. http://www.ice.hpv.co.uk/

www.danscomp.com they sell the primo slic 18x1 tires and tubes and rims
even. I am building a delta streamliner trike with two of those for the
rear. seem like a nice high pressure slick. go to "bike parts"-"tires
race/trails" scroll down and you should see them on the right.

Harris Cyclery has 18 x 1.5" tubes and tires, and they also stock
tires for the birdy folding bike which is an 18 x 1.12" tire and that
should work. The URL is:

Also, I take it you contacted the manufacturer of the Lightning
Handcycle and asked them where to get the tires? If not, here is
their address.
360 Sepulveda Blvd, Suite 1005
El Segundo, CA 90245

310-592-5479 Cell
888-426-3292 Toll Free

Sheldon Brown's site is an old favorite of mine.
