Gents, my short fat hairy legs put me very close to the steering wheel.
I'd like to give myself more "arm room" and wondered whether the motolita wheel mounts in the same position as the stock wheel (S4 if it makes a difference) or closer to the dash?
Thanks
G

I can't remember of hand. I do however have a choice of 2 spare moto-lita wheels and an Aero steering boss going spare!

Black wide rim suede or standard narrow wood! Open to offers.

I have Moto-Lita's on both the GTN and the S5.

Shooter do you know where one can get a GTN style steering wheel from?
I spoke to Moto-Lita and they said they have never done a shiny black wooden wheel, so Morgan must have customised them? That or I have been misinformed.. I currently have a black leather one but was thinking the wood might be a nicer overall feel.

Thanks.

If you have a wooden one ask M.kauffeld.
He changes the color of ML steering wheels.

Moto Lita said to me they hadn't made a black one too but I think the issue is they tried and couldn't get it totally gloss black for some reason or at least to how the were happy with it.


The GTN wheel does look black except in bright sunlight then it looks a bit different!

Thanks Shooter, what colour is it in bright sunlight?
I guess they might have been slightly pedantic with me..

Well, the purple would have suited my GTN when I first got it. I wasn't keen on the blue and silver (its grown on me now) and I was considering a few alternate colour wraps for it, matt black all over or deep purple!
