Powerbike tire size

What size tires are on a 1948 powerbike? I have a parts manual, but it doesnt list a part number or size for the tires, only a part number for the wheels.

Powerbike 50, with Villiers JDL engine, had tyres 26 x 2 x 1.75.

tyre sizes

Worth a check ,but I think you will find the 26 in the diameter is the outside diameter as used to be in the old fashioned way of detailing tyre sizes, think you will find the inside diameter we are used to will be nearer 24 ??, suggest you contact vintage tyre supplies for confirmation , and / or tyres.
