Love it!!!

I still have my road bike that I bought new in 1986 for team road circuits.

Never altered any of the full groupo Nuovo Record on my bike made by Marinoni but with my cycling coach's Italian family crest on them.

Hmmmmm......must dust it off for a spin.

I first thought it had 'kerbed' tyre walls but seems that's a logo. Wtf are they? Looks like Megotra?

They are. You can see MAXXIS on the opposite side.

Just standard Baroque wheels. Think they call them Mexican Hat?

As far as I can find, Mercedes started using alloy wheels in 1970, that's ten years after the red Merc was built.

They do look rather large in diameter though. Quick search shows that someone started making aftermarket forged ones, so they could be these?

That’s a Chimaera. Cerberas are not convertibles.

I know the fella that owns the Mercedes. It had chrome hubcaps on it until a few weeks ago. The wheels are aftermarket ones.
