Default Tyre slipping on rim

My father has a 76 Honda CD175, has punctured twice in one week, the mechanic who looked at it thinks with the weather the tyre is slipping on the rim, and pulling the tube causing it to tear at the valve

Any idea on how to stop this, or is it just a case for a new tyre.

I should say the tyre on it has no use done whatever.

more likely incorrect tyre pressure imo unless the tyre is very old and gone hard.

Iíd agree with low tyre pressure. Thatís why dirt bike running low pressures use rim locks.
