Gull Wing Question

Post by Knight Ind.2000 » Wed Mar 23, 2011 4:18 pm

Hey everyone, do any of you know anything about this steering wheel? I have no idea who makes it, it was given to me as a gift. I think it was purchased from eBay. Its completely hollow with no opening in the back to mount is as you can see by the photos.Its made from a light plastic and is really light weight. I wanted one that I could actually use as a functioning wheel but, I don't think this one can be mounted where it will stay attached, wouldn't want it falling in my lap in the middle of the road :shock: yikes!
Thanks,
:kitt:

Can't help you with its origins but the lightweight casting would certainly suggest prop for display than actual use. Would be interested if you were willing to sell it as its just what I'm looking for...!

I would be willing to sell it. Would you be willing to pay what I paid for it,$190.00 plus shipping? Also, do you have Pay Pal? If you do what I can do is post the gull wing on my eBay account and then post the link here. If you are still interested let me know.
Thanks,
Autumn :kitt:

Sorry, I made a mistake on my earlier post. The $190.00 I stated earlier included the shipping. Sorry about that. Also,if your still interested in it, I will just send you a order form through PayPal (if you have PayPal) and not post it on eBay. Let me know and we'll work something out. :D
Thanks,

I can't be 100% sure but I'm fairly confident that this gullwing came from a guy going by the name knightscan.industries.2000 on ebay.

A good friend of mine had a very similar if not the same style gullwing with the flat backing plate/hollow inside issue.

From what I can gather, most people give up and use it as a nice shelf decoration and find a better wheel to work with for their car. Trying to convert this thing to a usable wheel is considered by most to be just too unsafe.

Hope that helps.

just go to the main knight rider trans am sites they got many with actual parts http://www.knightridershop.com/gullwing.htm this one cost 500 bucks and it has reinforced steel inside. All you guys have is just moldings and careful not to buy things on ebay they rip you off more times then anything else.
