It's a no-name copy of the Moto~Lita/LeCarra wheel. I have seen and used them, and they are very nice. The woodwork and horn button are roughly a zillion percent better than the cheap wheels we so often deride on this forum.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

I've got my factory deluxe wheel sold so that I can replace it with one with less dish. This unit says that the dish is less than 2". Every little bit will help, as short as I am.

That hub is gonna move the wheel right back to where your original dished one was.

22GT, is it really a nice wheel? Looks pretty good, I like it. There's really not too many wheels that appeal to me, that's why I still have the stock one. So far the only ones I like are the Moro/Le Carra. What's the diameter of the eBay one, anybody know? I didn't see it in the add, maybe I missed it.

I'm not a complete idiot, pieces are missing.

I had a Lecarra wheel that purported to have the same dish as this, along with a hub that at least looks the same and I gained a bit over an inch. If I can get the same result, it will be worth it.

I have one and it's a really really nice quality piece and you will gain a little on the "dish". John

Wheel arrived.

The rim is about 7/8" from the turn signal stalk. A definite improvement.
