Leather Sofa's and Old Steering Wheels

The mailman brought me this cool old 350 mm Momo Monza steering wheel last week.  The leather is just amazing.  Only problem is that it apparently was involved in a hard accident at some point and the top two spokes were broken.

I am tempted to leave it as-is simply because the repair is just so cool with the old rivets and such.  I really want to use it in the car though, so I plan to drill it apart this weekend, have it TIG'd and then file and finesse it back to perfection...but maybe not...I just cant decide! 

Should be a fun project.  I love the wheel, only thing that would make it better is if it was 380mm.

I will update when I get more done.

  1. This may seem a bit out of the blue, but I've come back to this photo for more than a year now - and wondering if you have any more pictures of this beautiful wheel?
