Awhile back in spotted a little bird with a smaller diameter steering wheel. The wheel looked original in every other respect. The owner said it had been so long ago he couldn't remember where he bought it. Got me to thinking it would be more comfortable for many squarebird owners if they had a few inches less of wheel. Not that I need it mind you, but some larger friends might. LOL. I haven't found anyone who knew anything about a retailer or a fabricator. Anyone out there ever run across any info on this?
Let's be careful out there.

If installing something other than OEM I guess you would need an adapter - and one that has the horn pieces would be nice.

Whaddya know.....one on ebay (hope the link works)
