I'm building my 1921 model "K" from a basket case. My question is this…the original 1920 K brochure says the tire size is 27 x 3 1/2. All the '20 and later Hendersons I've seen have the balloon 20 x 3.85 tires. I cannot imagine a 27 in rim on the Henderson like the brochure states as the fender is so wide I believe this would look strange. What am I missing? I need to purchase the clincher rims so I want to make sure I'm on the right track. Also are the spokes the same diameter both from and rear? My rear hub has the spoke holes much larger than my front hub. Thanks for all responses. Kris
