    Hi Folks,

    I’m letting this one go early. The leather is in very usable condition, and I wouldn’t recover it. There is minor surface cracking that is removeable. The spokes need a new coat of satin black. I also recommend rechroming the spoke ends. It is hard to find these wheels with good leather and a crack free horn button. The rest is very restoration friendly.

    I’m selling for $350. I will also do a light restoration at a $550 price point. That includes rejuvenating the leather and removing the cracks, painting, and chroming the end caps. The end caps cost me $150 for chrome, so this isn’t a get rich quick scheme. ;)

    Now that wheel was well represented. Excellent photos of the true condition.

    Bob, get him to restore it. The one he did for me is spectacular!

    Since Markos sold his wheel, I also have one in poor condition. It's available for a fair price.
