Looks odd to me, I will have to compare it to mine, however I wold want more for mine if I was to sell it, so I honestly dont think it is that over priced.....It will need a Jeff Stephens refinish though.

It appears that part of the mounting hub has been removed by a saw.

From the eBay ad:






And the hub from a different wheel.

Question, the wheel was made in Italy, was it made by MOMO ?

This wheel should destroy your NOS turn signal brushes in nothing flat.

Thats what I thought, it will never work, and just think, someone might buy it.

Might be good mounted and placed in a museum for display only. The person should donate it or list it with an opening bid of 1.00. Maybe even separate the horn button from the wheel.

The saw idea looks to be right on.

OUCH
