Steering Wheel Boss ID

Post by Spitz »

I had this Boss in some Mini bits.
I was hoping it would fit my LL Monte wheel...but it doesn't
Any ideas on what wheel this is for?
Thanks

Obvious question I know, but does it actually FIT your Mini splines, seat fully and lock down? If it doesn't do all 3, then it might be from something else of course. But it does look like a pretty hefty bit of kit!

Very sorry to tell but this is an uninteresting boss, must be from the 90th or so. Will find out what it is but that's in my main computer.

If you watch what the kids are wearing it looks like the 90s are back in fashion! :lol:

Pretty sure that is from the 1976 mini special here in Canada

Here's two the same - stamped C109. Both wheels were made in France, and the boss (plus your boss) have "Made in France" stamped in them.

The first link he says it's 98mm PCD which is a tiny bit smaller than the usual 101.6mm on a Moto Lita

And going by the similar construction on this one, I'm going to say it's a Formuling
