How tall are you? I am trying to get some sort of idea since I am only 5'6" and the wheel fits perfectly.

I'm 6'3". This change as well as elevating the front of the seat approx. 1.5" made a huge difference.

Nicely made, hope you have extra long fingers to reach the indicator stalk it's a stretch using my 1 inch spacer!!!

Having tried the 2” temporary spacer, I ended up going with a 1” spacer. It gives me enough room for my left knee so I can rest my clutch foot on the floor, and I can still reach the stalk. I’m 6’5”.

Krazy Horse can supply spacers with the right four bolt pattern for Brooklands wheels for those without machining capability.

Yes, it's definitely a stretch to the turn signal indicator, most often I use the classic arm signals for left and right. (However, I suspect this means next to nothing for our younger drivers!)

I am 6'2" and the Krazy Horse spacer was perfect. Posted a pic of it. Cuna2016...very nice work!

You could sit on the boot lid and drive it with that.
