Lotus Elan

Elan Sprint Reproduction Steering wheel horn boss

PostPost by: memnon » Wed Nov 10, 2010 8:21 pm

Hi All,

I couldn't find any of these so I have had a set made:

In the first picture is a wheel with a new boss fitted.
The second picture shows a new and old boss side by side.

I have weighed the new boss and it is within 20g of the original boss. It has been turned from Aluminium bar.
I only know that they fit Elan Sprints - I know it is a springalex underside, I don't know what other Lotus cars that they do fit!

Just to avoid doubt only the new bosses are for sale, the wheel, horn push and springalex part are not for sale, although I may be able to help source springalex parts.

Price is £90 delivered to mainland UK.
I am happy to answer any questions about them, and you can come and look if you want to. Please message me in the first instance.

Hi, I think I want one, do you also ship to germany?

Is it also made of metal? Please tell me about the diameter, because I have a deep dish Springalex (as the original is not so beautiful to me...)

Can you clarify,is it just the top part not the bottom part? (two pieces forming a steering wheel sandwich)...

Quite correct just the top of the steering wheel sandwich...

I'll keep a look on that one! I have 1 +2 chapman signed wheel, but it needs recovering and I can't afford that yet.

Hi,

They differed from model, so it all depends which type you are looking for.

I had ones made for Elan Sprints, I am out of stock but I'll commission a new batch with sufficient interest.

Jason, If you ever start fabricating again, put me down for an early steering wheel hub for the Springall wood wheel both top and bottom. Fits S1 S2 S3. S4 sprint had a different Hub like yours. If you ever run across the three metal spokes, I'm in on that too.
Here are a few pics of what I need.
It has been awhile and would be good to talk again,
