I wanted to make a steering wheel that combined the delicate and deliberate machined look of early GP and Indy car parts with the unmistakable look of a four spoke Bell. Something that would not look out of place in anything from an early lakes roadster to an Auto Union or Miller. I know I set my sights a high with that, but in the end I got the wheel I wanted and I think it's cool. This one is a prototype of sorts. Grips are hardwood but currently bare and the finish on the rivets is not perfect - but pretty damn close for something that was a piece of 1/4" plate and a stack of wood in the morning, and going through final assembly later that night before we left for the Roundup. Thinking I might do a limited run with several material options for the rim.
