eps2eps may to be one of those programs that have problems
with negative bounding box coordinates or else it intentionally
clips the figure to the page boundary, losing the parts where any
coordinate is negative.

If that is the case,you can end your metapost figure with
  currentpicture := currentpicture shifted -llcorner currentpicture;

Hello all,

I  have just learned of eps2eps!  So I tried it on one of
my metapost created files and to my surprise the eps file created
contained only one quarter of the original image.    The original
image symmetric about both the x and y axes.

I have attached the original metapost created file here.   wheel.1

Many thanks in advance for any insights.
