1980 Yamaha XS650 Street Tracker with Maxxis 27.0 X 7.0 DTR1 installed

I installed the tire on the rim by hand using basic tire irons.  The trick is to use a couple of large C-Clamps to  pinch the  tire and hold it in place.  This way you can work it around the rim without it backing off from the other end.
