Wanted: Single Spoke Steering Wheel

Post by Fumbler »

I'm in no rush (as winter is coming) but I'd love to find a new steering wheel for the BX as I'm getting annoyed with mine disintegrating in my hands every time I use it. I don't mind what colour it is, so long as the coating isn't cracked and it cleans up nicely. Can do with the centre plastic as well but it's no deal-breaker if it doesn't come with the steering wheel.

Have one in brown. Rim is soft and compliant. Don't think I have the centre plastic parts.

Hmm... would brown mean it's for a mk.1 BX? Mine's a mk.2 with a blue interior.

The mark 1 I believe has a smaller (narrower) spoke. This has wider spoke with upside down "L" section for central cover.

That's right. The inverted L (big central pad/cover with badge) is the mk.2 wheel.

Sounds good. I have a centre plastic in good condition that'll fit despite being blue.

I wonder if this stuff would work on changing the colour to something like your original

It may but I'm not too concerned about the colour difference. Brown might clash but it's better than the disintegrating wheel I currently have!

I'm not far away if you want to have a look at it first hand. Hometown is Horley, or at workshop at Burstow.

Sounds good. Depending on the situation with the car I might be able to visit during the weekend if possible.
