    Got this one from a JY last year for $10. 8)

    Made in Italy deep dish Personal 4-spoke, built 11/74. :tu: :mrgreen:

    Leather has no scratches or stains, has very cool white stitching in great shape, and came with a Datsun Nardi hub too!

    Here's a couple of Nissan ones

    Nismo Compe Handle: I think this was an original Nissan Sport Corner part in the early 70s, but was re-issued in the early 90s by Nismo. Nismo made a run of 500 which was immediately sold out, so they made another run of 500 (which was also immediately sold out) The rim looks like stitched leather but is actually soft plastic and the stitching is fake, it's just moulded plastic.


    The Compe is kinda a default sports wheel for classic nissans in Japan, so much so that they came up with an aftermarket replica C10 GT-R hornpad that fits over the Compe.


    This other one is called "Mach"

    I've seen them fitted to the factory Hako touring cars, and I think they were an aftermarket wheel from back in the day. Leather rim (which seems to go white with age) and super expensive today if you can find one. I think repros are available, also super expensive at $2k apiece

    Here's what I am using now..
    Personal wood steering wheel.. had it re-upholstered a few months back because of slight cracks in the wood.. but the new leather didn't quite worked out well.. so I'm planning to have it re-upholstered again.. but this time, through a professional upholsterer.





    Also, got this watchamacallit steering wheel as my reserve hehe

    Mine is a Nardi classic. I stuck with the polished look to compliment the Defi gauges.

    Not japanese but somehow classic:
    80s wooden Momo

    Nardi


    But trying to get a stock wheel at the moment. Imho the best looking stock wheel that has ever been inside a cockpit.
