Gorgeous John! The amount of momo variations is maddening. My 380 Alpina has a straight momo logo. Hans and a few other members have a stacked logo. The important thing is that there is no logo on the front of the wheel, which is correct for all but a handful of Alpina wheels.Pretty excited to share this one with you guys, and looking for a little info as well. I just landed this gorgeous, original, 38cm CSL Momo Alpina Wheel. Just an amazing looking and feeling wheel, it’s not perfect of course as with all 40+ year old wheels, but the size, grip, and leather are amazing. Everything about the wheel checks out, the design, grain of the leather and aluminum, the Alpina engraving, the stitching, the font on the Made In Italy, everything, with the experts I have shown it too so far. The only exception and weird thing is that ‘Momo’ is not stamped on it anywhere. Now, I have seen other Momo wheels without the Momo stamp on, and these were such a limited production item its not totally surprising. My best guess is that it’s a later one similar to the around the mid-‘70’a wheels that just have Made in Italy on the back. Anyway, there are so few pictures of CSL wheels available, and even less of the backside, I’m wondering is anyone else has more info? Either way I am still very excited to have this rarity! Thanks! John
The leather and wheel face look fantastic!
