Bob, I have two early Springall 15 inch wood wheels with Hubs and horn push with new original horn Logos.
Both wheels have been refurbished. The one with the Green & Yellow Logo $1,100 and the one with Black & Silver Logo $1,050. Shipping in the USA is about $40 each and it may be a little less from my spotty memory??

Hope that is what you needed. Give me a call if you have any questions.

I also have two 14 inch S4 and Sprint wheels. One is a signed 14 inch 3 hole spoke with the original perfect PVC/plastic?? covering, has a Hub and horn push with an original Black & Silver horn logo. The spokes have a small amount of pitting that I could not get out.
The other 14 inch wheel, is the 4 hole black spoked with hub with no horn push It has an after market leather covering over a strong rubber covering that was a bitch to get on. You will have a hard time trying to get it off.
But is a real nice comfortable grip.
If interested please get in touch with me. I also have 15 inch wood wheel that may have come from a Lotus Cortina.

Why don't you contact Mark Davies, he makes new wheels at a fraction of the price of an original. They own the rights to the wheels so they are 100% accurate.

I own an original (which I posted) and a “new” remanufactured “restored” Elan wooden steering wheel from Sarto. Both are very nice. The original wheel has a patina history that can’t be replicated. Depends on what you want and what your willing to pay for.

The original wheel I have owned for years and I’m not making any profit on it. It’s been hanging in my garage as “Art”.
