I wonder how hard it is to keep the side walls white. Over time they must get kinda grimy right?

Did I hear someone mention whitewall tires on a white bike? lol - Retro - That's exactly what I'm looking for. And a nice big front touring fender.. I think it's kind of cool how we all have our own "look" that we're going for. By the way, my helmet is black and I don't wear white shoes...... yet

I don't have white walls but used to on autos and there are several cleaners out there like Bleach White and like the regular cleaners (no shine stuff) you use on black walls will usually work... If they are really dirty spray them down with the cleaner and use a fairly stiff brush, they will surprise you at how clean and bright they will be...
One thing that might be worth mentioning is to NOT Armorall them as when you lay it over in a curve, you may lay on the pavement...lol... No slicky, slicky stuff on a cycle tire...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

I watched an accident reconstruction on television once where a biker did exactly that. He Armor-All'd his tires and then went out for a ride. As he laid it over around a right-hand sweeper, he low-sided into oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, the oncoming traffic happened to be an 18-wheeler. Neither he, nor the bike, survived.
