1950 U-22 Steering Wheel

Post by cewplatt » Thu Jun 30, 2011 7:49 pm

I'd like to replace the non-original steering wheel on my 1950 22' Sportsman. Anybody know what style would be original? I've seen 2-spoke and the 3-spoke banjo type in the registry. Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Clay Platt

I also have U-22-1688 with a standard 2 spoke Shellar wheel. Another U-22 that I have not found the serial number on but also has the 2 spoke shellar wheel.

Also have U-22-1532 With the wheel like Ken's

Thanks for the great replies. It look's like my wheel is very similar and may be original after. Fortunately, it's in great shape. I just need the throttle lever and outer hub. This is good news!

Thanks,

Clay
