    Recently,
    I purchased my dream wheels (CD31) and love them. However, one wheel has a center cap that is brass (beautiful) while the other three are silver in color. Totally an oversight on my part when choosing the center caps. The three silver caps look new and the brass looks very worn and old.
    Would anyone have an extra Cromodora center cap to match the three silver ones?
    Of course I would purchase and pay for shipping.
    Please, refer to the pictures attached.
    Thanks,
    Mike
    P.S. This is the OCD in me coming out...lol

    I'm sure you can find one but how about just having the brass one plated to match?

    The brass one is pretty dinged up and the dimples that are supposed to be there have been smoothed out. I am very OCD if you can’t tell...lol
    Thanks,

    Maz124s,
    How much??? My wife is already angry with me for not paying attention to the center caps when I bought the wheels.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    there is an ebay seller in europe that has these as reproductions... and I even think our own Riccardo made some of these up.

    the "trouble" with the repros is a bit of lack in the fine detail...for those of us who are OCD

    this is what an original looks like, the "stippled" area is black, with the raised surfaces bright polished.

    the difficult part to find is the retaining plate at the rear, which comes in a few different sizes (OD of the "step" varies by several mm) to fit different wheel styles.

    absolutely the best looking wheel for an X19 (I have 13 x 6 Daytona's on my 1978 S1 :) )

    I keep seeing a set of 4 caps that match the ones that came with my CD31s for about $90 on eBay but they are in Serbia. I don’t know if I trust that too much. There are two listed and they are both the same pics but the prices are different. Makes my very suspicious.
    Does anyone have a silver one laying around that they could sell me?

    Buy the current reproductions. I have sold a few sets, all without complaints. But remember that they are NOT originals, and never will be.

    Yeah, you are right. I will, probably in the near future. Just thought there might be one someone who has one cap that they might part with here.
    I like the Serbia ones on eBay but scared to send them money.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Then spend more money, and buy them from a US vendor that you can trust? Otherwise you take your chances, and they got your US $$$.
    I buy them in Italy, but only GOD knows where they are made, and she ain't telling!

    So far, I have not found any here in the US. I will keep looking.
    If she ain’t telling then they just might be the Serbian ones or Chinese.
    I will be patient and find the right ones.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Right after I posted I saw these but I swear they said “Serbia” not Italy or these are totally a new post. They look sweet. Maybe next week I can get them and hopefully they make it to my door...lol
    Thanks everyone,

    Huh?
    I have new reproductions, right here in the good old USA. But I guess that used reproductions from Serbia would work just as well...

    Chris,
    Hold the phone... you have reproductions now for sale???
    I just had a brain cell fire off and I just remembered who you are. I will troll your site for them.
    Sorry for not remembering you until now. Glad to see you are back here and still mentoring me... :)

    Chris,
    This is exactly what I need and a good price.
    I will measure the ones I have in the morning to make sure they are the same. Probably the same since my wheels came from Italy.
    This is great.
    Do you have one in stock or do I need to do the special order form?
    Plus, shipping to Riverview, Florida 33569.
    Sorry, excited to have found them even though you were telling me several conversations ago.
    Thanks man!!!
    Mike
