    WTB: crappy 390mm steering wheel....not the later sportline style but regular looking one.

    ...for a pistol grip refinish project. No airbag needed but will take it if in good shape. From an early 1992 model....yes, they are 390 mm but look like regular W124 wheels.

    LMK what you got and what you want for it shipped to 06040. Thanks !

    Jim...they are 390mm as opposed to 400, not 290...that would be around 11.5" diameter.

    I have a spare wheel that you could have for free.To be sure I'll measure the diameter later but it's a leather w124 wheel. I'm guessing the shipping to your location might be a deal breaker though but if it's any good to you- it's yours.

    The bottom image, exactly.

    I have a VICTOR comfort one with burl pieces...I want an all black leather one that DC Motors said they could make for me. I know VICTOR made them all black leather at one time but I give up looking for one...

    Jimbo,

    I have never seen a Victor st.wheel in all black leather sold as a Victor. It may have been made at some point, maybe with leather covered wood inserts, but I'm not sure. The only all leather Victor st.wheel I have seen is the Brabus version, and they are built on the same core and called VIC-DB3 as the others. The Brabus version has an embossed logo as well. I bought the Brabus st.wheel on the enclosed image, from a friend of member captruff some years back. Jeff handled the purchase, packed & shipped it - splended service!

    Re: WTB: crappy 290mm steering wheel....not the later sportline style but regular looking one.

    Joe hooked me up...thanks bro!

    I actually contacted Victor years ago Arnt, they did make them in all black leather but only as a request, and my request years later wouldn't happen. Not 100% confirmed but Victor did them forBrabus in all leather with their embossing logo.

    I think Jeff had one or two for sale in the past but was either too slow or too cheap to pony up for one....my loss.

    I hope you installed that wheel Arnt...and have your haus and cars all locked up. Jimbo might swoop in and steal it.
