The Old Bicycle Company has a stash of NOS Michelin 650B Semi-Confort (44 – 584) tires with classic amber sidewalls.

That’s not a surprise : Michelin still has those tyres in their 2009 catalogue !! They just keep on producing them, and Michelin’s suggested retail price is € 11.50.
£ 25 is horribly overpriced, and worse for old tyres.

Dang, I want some of them. They look positively juicy.
Too bad I’m neither nobility or gentry.
They may list the World Tour 35B and 44B in their catalog but I have only found the 35’s for sale. I’m not sure that the 44 is actually available.
44 650b available 11.50 euros
ive bought 6 so far
Where did you buy the tyres?
Looks like they still have some available:
I called them and they said they haven’t been able to get their hands on any for over a year, slight disaster. If you know of anywhere else I could look please let me know. Thanks
TRY SHEBORN BIKES THEY HAVE A VERY SIMILAR TYRE
44 GUMWALL , I THINK CONTINENTAL OR SHWALBE
