Classic 125/150/175 Tyre choice

Hi guys, looking for recommendations on tyre choice for my 62’ 150 GT.

I’m part way through restoring the bike and just taking the hubs off to be polished and laced onto alloy flanged rims and want to get tyres ready.

I’ve never ridden this bike on the road, just a little go up the garden on the rock hard original Pirelli’s 🙂 so would appreciate recommendations of what other people gone with?!??

Assuming wheels are 19" on the 150 are as on 175 then I have on mine:
Front: Chen Sin (ribbed) 2.75 x 19
Rear: Mitas H-01 300 x 19
Both look the part.
Your spelling of tyre leads me to think that you are in UK and so I sourced them from Vintage Tyres at Beaulieu.
If they don't have any in stock I do have a new, unused, set should you get stuck.
