Also my partner in the project thinks we have a 2 speed and that it is earlier then the 27 I thought it might be.

Being a two speeder or not should be easy recognisable by the right hand gearpedal.

The only tyres I can find are of the block type like:


Dunlop

or


Coker

But aren’t those old type (beades edge) tyres measured over the OD of the tyre instead of the rim? I cannot find it right now but I thought it was possible to fit more modern size tyres on these old rims. There must be a conversiontable somewhere on the net… But maybe I am wrong entirely. I am sure someone here will know!
