Seems like a lot of those fat tire Bronc's stay solid, start up and can ride right away. Just my theory but reason there are a good amount of Bronc's around and usually in decent shape is American made with good ole American steel frame, reliable American made Tecumseh engine, etc etc.

Replacement tires are limited but doable! These arrived flat and compressed. Tire shop called them the tires from hell! Front and rear are both 21x12-8's just like the original carlisles that were super cracked and dry rotted but miraculously still held air...

awesome score man, i been eye ballin those lately as well. on those shipped flat tires, i will stick a inner tube in em, pump it up till they have shape and let em sit in the sun or close to the wood stove in the winter. makes it way easier to mount for whoever you take em too, but they earned their money that day lol I bet that things gonna ride like a caddy.

That'll patch, albeit a very big ass patch. HeeHee!
I literally only bought it to inflate inside and try and get the tire to reshape. Once it popped I let the tire guys play with them. Lol I tossed the tube in the trash. Being that the tires are tubeless.

It almost looks like the Heathkit Hilltopper & Boonie Bike instructions. Makes sense because Heathkit was in same Heald warehouse and Hilltopper uses some of same Heald Bronc parts.
