Just bought this very nice 15" woodrim steering with a Triumph boss and Lucas hornpush.

Question 1 : Is this an SPEEDWELL made wheel ?
Question 2 : I would like to have a Mini boss for it, someone has one ?

Not funny, I hope to convert it to an classic Mini wheel :cry:
The boss looks like this, not an very complicated boss.

Hi Kees,

I do have a wheel just like this, and the best thing is it fits Mini! :mrgreen:
Unfortunately I don't know who is the maker.
The only image I seen before is a similar wheel of MK1 fitting as fitted to Peter Manton 1071S.

The outerdiameter is 70mm and the hole in the steering wheel is 26mm.
Would be great if you can help me with it, thanks.

Kees.
