    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.

    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. :(

    That looks like original Nardi stitching to me. Nardi also used a parallel stitch.

    Yes it is an original Nardi, purchased new several years ago. I alternate between the Nardi and 380 petri that has been recovered.

    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 place
    with a spring clip that is integrated into the button body. Once free unplug the single lead going to the back of the horn button.

    What about a show us your knob thread, or are they all just the same old wood? I have quite a few wood knobs, some with a BMW badge some without, Pat

    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.

    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.
    Yeah that early type horn is cool, also like it much. With later style black plastic ring is not the same, as with silver metal one.

    Just bought the wheel I've always wanted for my car, a 380mm Petri. Think I'm gonna have it wrapped in leather in the future.

    I’m selling my restored Protoipo on another forum to find my Alpina restoration. I figured I could memorialize it here. Is it sad that I’m going to miss a horn button.? :D

    In the spirit of the prototipo, I thought I'd share my "unrestored" (as if I needed to clarify that - ha ha) Momo Prototipo. I also have a Nardi wheel, but may end up restoring and running this one. I grow more fondly of it every day.

    LOL - I tend to hyper focus on such nonsense.
