Front 0 to 6 lbs. rear 28 to 57 lbs. My bike has a sticker on the right handle bar, down by the yoke cover, rear, cover off by the schrader valve.

I can tell you that for an 84 correct pressure is 32 psi front, 32 - 40 rear depending on load

I have Dunlop EIII's and run the front at 36 and the rear 38 I weigh in at 180lb some may think they are a little high but I like the way the bike handles at those pressures.

rdjohn, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope this restoration project eases your grief a little and provides you with a nice way to remember her.
