Watanabe Falcon Steering Wheel

Watanabe parts are already hard to get… Getting a Watanabe Falcon steering wheel is a lot harder. Try finding somone selling one right now, chances are slim. The wheel comes in two versions; 3 spoke and 4 spoke. One is a Falcon Type I and the other is Falcon Type II, I really don’t know which one is which. The steering wheel features a unique horn with the Watanabe Falcon logo. This is a piece I wish I could add to my collection.
