Here is an other picture of that wheel :This is from an original publicity photo of the Giulia Ti Super showing the road version of the Campagnolo elektron alloys. Note that the cooling holes are different to the more common TZ version, and the early Sprint GT hubcaps.
I actually like the look of these wheels a lot, mostly because they're more subtle and rare too. The only problem is, who has any - or who would have the guts to produce them?
Reviving an old thread ...
I was going through a few files last weekend and came across this black and white photo which I purchased at a swap meet some years ago, but had completely forgotten about. The photo speaks for itself, but on the back is written "Giulia Ti Super, nouvelles roues coulies en élektron" ('new wheels cast in elektron'). The date is unknown but the photo credit is given to one "Et[ien] Cornil". Does anyone recognise these wheels? Careful inspection of the cooling holes shows that they're not the 80s/90s Technomagnesio replicas, and certainly not the Hein Brand/Compomotive items.
I'd LOVE to get my hands on a set of the early square-hole style of wheel but, for now at least, can anyone add any info on the wheel below?
Well a rim 'inspired' by this design can be found at Classic Alfa :Hello Alex
They are the genuine magnesium (elektron) alloys supplied as original equipment on the Ti Supers. As shown, they differ from the TZ wheels in having squared-off holes. This is clearly an early build car - you'll notice that behind the holes are the gorgeous finned alloy brake drums that the first of the Ti Supers were equipped with - pretty soon after, they switched to discs. [My 62/63 Giulia Sprint 101 Series has the same brake drums, and they're very effective (pulled over 1g in their last 'green slip' - like MOT - test) but because there's no power assist, you have to stamp on them.]
Yes, it would be terrific to have a set of these wheels, but hens' teeth would be easier to find.
