Not original. Added later. Personally, I dont like these new wire wheels that have been put on so many other classics also.

No chance! A lot of areas are addons and for me spoil the car totally.

Post war Merc's with wire wheels? Yuck. Even 300SL owners are content with the steel rims and Merc caps which are very similar to the lesser Ponton models, though some 300SL's have the ultra desirable Rudge knock off wheels (original to the cars).

Farhan, you have posted very nice pictures, a good effort to show many angles of many cars.
About this 1951 Mercedes, not only are the wheel non original, I believe that originally she was actually a 4 door sedan!!

The Two Wheelers. Sorry i have no knowledge about two wheelers and neither any details on them. Just the picures. No mention of them in the entry list either.
