Just got one that I plan to either run on my current vehicle or the next project.
Nice one Cheech, hows Chong?
I still remember burning my hands on one during a very hot summer long ago!!! OUCH!!!!!
Now your talking Billy. Run it baby run. You better hurry up and pick up this bumper so you can get it mounted for Dixie Fried!!!!!
Flake paint the center
I've heard that those things will rip your finger off if you hold it wrong. Don't let it stop you from using it just watch out.
Got seat belts?
had one in a 76 grand prix years ago. wouldnt do it again!
thats the spirit! don't let good taste or looks hold you back! butt-rock that baby!
The MAN made those illegal here in Oklahoma but I know a lil custom shop who will sell ya one cause they still on the shelf before they were illegal!! IM A FAN!!!!
Here's one i saw at Bonneville Speed week at the Wendover Nugget Casino car show. John
I've got one in my pickup. It does get hot on 90 degree plus days. I got it from a buddy to get rid of the ugly '80's camaro wheel that was in there. I am going to eventually get a good metalflake wheel or re-do my '59 Impala wheel when I get further along in doing my interior. But then again, the longer I stare at the chain wheel, the more I like it.
I say run it holmes.
Do you know why they are so small?
I smell a joke. Why?
So you can still drive with hand cuffs on?
Those things are soo uncomfortable!! Just be careful not to stick your fingers between the links while your driving, no telling what would happen in a crash if you did that..your new nickname would be billy four fingers!!!!
yes, its a cool wheel... make sure you get some dingo balls for the headliner tho
Be a man, make one out of barbed wire!
Other than it's ugly and uncomfortable, I see nothing wrong with it
I'm hoping to swing by this weekend and pick it up.
...I KEEPS IT REAL.
Don't have a chain wheel. But I just made one out of a bar stool...John
My dad ran one in his 63 impala back in the mid 70's...until he got into a fender bender and knocked out his bottom row of teeth. I guess if you think it's worth it.
Now I like that one what did you use for the center I am going to build my own for my T-bucket?
Seriously, I don't think that would be limited to chain wheels. If you hit any non-airbag steering wheel with your face in a crash, you're likely to lose teeth. That's just a fact of life.
they were illegal for the same reasons spinner knobs were,they would rip off your fingers in a wreck, plus there were people who tried to make their own and had them break while driving.
chain wheels are for pussies.
I wanna see one made from barbed wire!
Three words......what the fuck????
I used the original 28 chevy column, and 4 spokes. just rebuilt and rebushed everything. Including filling and machining the end of the shaft to accept a double d hookup...John
