    Would anyone have any interest in the Italian Borrani wire wheels? Used on vintage Ferraris, Ford GT40s, basically anything Lemans related.

    Yeah, luv'em. My old brain even recalls at least one Fad-T wearing widened ones in the 70's. Skylark wires are nice, but those Borrani's are sooo Italian!

    Did they make them for bikes too. I seem to remember my Honda 450 flat track style bike had a set on it.

    Didn't Borrani make a steel road/racing wheel that was used on such cars as the Jag D-type and the Facel Vega HK500? A set of those would be REALLY cool! :D

    Wow, didn't think this would get as much attention as it did. I work at Motion Products Inc. we have partnered with Borrani, and are the only distributor in North and South America. We offer a wide range of automobile and motorcycle rims. As A32Flathead posted, the contact information is listed on the website.

  14. I think the Jag wheel that appeared to be steel with all small holes around the center was made by Dunlop, and may have been aluminum.
