Hi all, what do you think of this wheel? It's 15", has the Morris horn button so I'm hoping for a mini boss..

LL on the bottom of the spoke means Les Leston.

Yup, Les Leston Grand Prix, the boss on the bottom looks like the correct shape for a mini too.

Excellent! It was titled as a wooden Morris steering wheel, pick up only, and a couple of blurry photos. Let's see how it looks when it turns up, it sounds like a bargain...

It turned up in the post today. It looks pretty good, a small ding on the top left and a few little cracks in the wood, but should clean up pretty nice. Let's just hope the boss is right when I get home this afternoon!

It was on Australian ebay too! They had it listed as pickup only, but I contacted them and they said postage would be OK. It was also very cheap for an LL wheel :D
