An early Black Spoke Leather Moto Lita with the smaller boss and horn pencil

uses the Black Lucas or similar Lotus horn Badge

it has the Triumph splines in te hub so will also fit TR5 etc

bought for my +2. I have owned it for 10 years or more

in very good used condition

shown with some bolts missing to show appearance -a new set will be required from Moto lita

If interested send a personal message

Nice early wheel John, and it looks the same as the Moto Lita fitted to my S3 for the past 30 odd years! They look so much better that the later ones that have to use the large plastic hornpush and centre.

I would think that the black paint would strip off if an aluminium finish was wanted.

I realize the original poster’s wheel has sold. I’m searching for one for my Elan, with spokes in either black or silver. If you have one or know of one for sale please let me know. Thank you.

Hi. I have a similar old style motolita wheel with correct boss. However, my wheel appears to be smaller diameter (came off my 7)and I'm in the UK....
Let me know if of interest at all and I'll dig it out.
