    Fulvia Steering Wheels

    Two questions for those of you who know a thing or two about Fulvia steering wheels:

    1. Would a wheel from a Flavia fit on a Fulvia? Specifically, I saw a recent craigslist post for a 63 Flavia, and just love the steering wheel in it:

    https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/6195845683.html
    Any idea where to source one of these if they would fit?

    2. What hub/adapter would I need if I wanted to put a Nardi/Momo wheel on the car? Something like this (or similar):


    Thanks!

    S2 Fulvia steering shaft is different from S1. So care with hub adapters. I know Omicron used to sell both hub adapters for momo style wheels (fits Nardi I think). S2 can take the later HF2000 wheel. Not sure if earlier flavia's would fit or would be to big diameter. The Flavia 3 spoke is a nice wheel - fitted to my Flavia Vignale.

    Thanks. I'll check with Omicron about the hub.

    Ultimately, I'm looking for a sturdier wheel, so the Flavia one probably wouldn't work for me anyway. It just looks so good!

    Re: Fulvia Steering Wheels

    I just found this hub made by Luisi on ebay from a seller in the UK:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/LANCIA-Fulvi...sAAOSwR29ZDIsi

    Reputable? Anyone heard of them?

    Thanks! I saw the wheel as well (and they sell a kit that comes with the wheel and the hub). I'll hold off on the wheel for now to explore some options, but the hub sounds like a good buy.

    I had to buy one of those Luisi adapters to fit a 3 spoke Moto-Lita wheel. The adaptor is well made and chemically blackened (I think), rather than sprayed and has almost the same texture as the Fulvia indicator/washer domes.

    Good to know, thanks for the insight. I'll order it and take my time deciding on what wheel I want.

    Was it pretty much plug and play? Any modifications/tinkering that you had to do?

    Re: Fulvia Steering Wheels

    I’ve just had a look back through my invoices:

    Bought it from these people: http://www.lenkradshop.de

    And bought these items individually:

    Item 2109
    https://shop.strato.de/epages/625250.../Products/2109

    Item 1443 b
    http://www.lenkradshop.de/epages/625...308.1499979236

    Item 1546 E (This is a blank horn control)
    https://shop.strato.de/epages/625250...%20oh.%20Bg%22


    But it seems that they’ve combined them to just this:
    https://shop.strato.de/epages/625250...ts/2109%2B1443


    I bought a better version of the Lancia logo off ebay.co.uk (than the one shown on the last link) to cover the blank horn control, but I can’t remember which supplier! I got the steering wheel direct from Moto-Lita (a Mk3 dished 15" wood-rim hole version + it comes with a top ring and screw set) and no spacers were needed.

    Otherwise it was just a couple of socket head screws on the hub adapter (supplied I think) and more of the same to fasten the Moto-Lita top ring, don’t trap the horn wire and make sure your wheels are facing forward when you put the steering wheel on!

    Re: Fulvia Steering Wheels

    I was about to make my standard Nardi steering wheel and adapter recommendations (Centerline Alfa, ClassicAlfa.com, and the Nardi website to find the right adapter) and did a quick search on price. I was shocked to find Amazon.com and even WalMart.com are offering Nardi. Prices were competitive. And I found the right adapter for my '68 Fulvia on Amazon. But, I'm not shopping for a Nardi. I love the original steering wheel. But I do have a Nardi on my Alfa Spider and love it. Some string back driving gloves and that polished wood make for a great experience.

    Have fun looking, there appear to be options out there that did not exist as recently as 3 years ago when I got my Nardi.
