After all the talk of LL steering wheels last week, I was inspired to get into the shed & sort a few of mine out.

1) 15" Wood Rim Formula (Speedwell Mini)
2) 15" Wood Rim Les Leston Grand Prix
3) 15" 6 Hole Wood Rim Les Leston on Mini "Type" Boss
4) 13" Wood Rim Astrali, a very nice early one with script logo
5) 15" Leather Formula (NOS)
6) 15" Leather Les Leston Grand Prix (NOS)
7) 15" Formula Wood Rim with Mahogany Inlay

Both my Springall wheels are fitted to cars.

All the above have the correct bosses fitted.

What do you have?

Very Nice Mark!!

Love the leather ones! I have a not as nice flat early Moto-Lita leather wheel for my project.

I do like flat Motolitas!

I have always preferred leather wheels too, but they are so much more difficult to find in good condition.
