Agreed! I like the leather Nardi and the button looks great. I’ve been looking for that button for over a year. Other than the one on Ebay for $150 they are never available.Very nice wheel Simon. Is the leather wrap original to the wheel? Looks like the Momo stitch. Either way, great looking wheel with the leather wrap.
Can you send me the link to the eBay auction?I agree that it looks cheap but sadly that is the button that Nardi has most readily available. There is another version with a larger roundel that looks much much better. I'm not sure if it is NLA or what, but I almost never see them for sale. There has been a used one on Ebay for a year or so for $150. I'm holding out for a used one that costs less.
This is the one I was referring to. Based on our track record check with the seller on fitment...Can you send me the link to the eBay auction?

A bit pricey but much better looking than the one I have now. I will contact the seller to confirm it fits. Do you know if they are hard to install or is it pretty easy? Thank youThis is the one I was referring to. Based on our track record check with the seller on fitment...
Yeah it’s easy. Pull the trim ring off with your hand or a small screwdriver. It is held to the steering wheel bolts with rubber grommets. The pull up on the edge of the horn button. It is held in placeDo you know if they are hard to install or is it pretty easy?
I’m glad you kept this wheel. I hope to have updates on my 350mm prototipo soon. It is the exact stitching and leather work that you would need should you decide to recover yours.My 350mm Alpina' stacked' Momo Prototipo.

On main steering part leather is still original from 70's - it was in pretty good condition (no cracks, no cuts etc.), so was no need to change it, before i started restoration leather was just soften for couple days with leather cream, and then leather paint was applied, the thread was replaced with new one. New leather is only on crossbars.Great job! New leather? I like that horn button!
