Not so easy to find a tire like that I guess, are you sure the rim is 18”? As most 140/80 tires we can find are 16 or 17”. The only tires I know of that come in 14/80 18 are enduro or off-road tires (which will not look that great on a chopper...

You can find some all-round 130/80 18 M/C and 150/70 18 M/C tires...

As you can see by photos there is plenty of room for a wider tire. Up to we believe 6"... but needs to remain 18" rim. Unless someone has a NSR150 rim that 17" Diameter. As this is style sprocket and disc brake being used (ear fork is Original NSR150 Honda)
