We have a winner <g>.

On the Lempert home page, the item labelled "slotted style steering wheels"
is a dead ringer. Except for being polished, and varnished, and generally
too clean and snazzy. Oh, and minor point, the rim rivets are arranged
symmetrically -- I guess mine is not an original Lempert.


Thanks, Ed, I know I've been to this page before, but I'd forgotten it, and
didn't have it bookmarked.

If you're near Mountain View, CA,
it's the primer red one with chrome wires

PS: I saw that Mike referred to this style as "Derrington" -- I googled
Derrington and found that Moto-Lita does make this style wheel in 16 inch,
but apparently Moss US doesn't carry it. But at 184.50 British pounds, it's
even more expensive than Lempert's made-to-order wheel.

PPS: Whoever outfitted my B way back when had expensive tastes. Besides the
"Derrington" wheel, it had chrome wires, and cast aluminum window winders
with real wood inserts and knobs, and matching door pulls. And, of course, a
walnut MG shift knob, and (not of course) a walnut veneer dash insert (on
the instrument surround) and radio speaker bezel. All of which have acquired
a serious patina at this point. Too bad he couldn't keep the bearings
together, and avoid running into things.
