Would be eaiser, quicker and cheaper to grab a good second hand one from somewhere - they go for up to $150 or so on ebay, but elsewhere for around $70-$100.

Changing the wheel over is not particularly hard, and usually takes me about 15-20 minutes all up, and I'm not mechanically minded in the slightest!

If its an optional wheel i wouldn't want to be changing it for the stocko one. Try hunt down an momo AU wheel.

That sounds good......The one on it think is original and has a great feel/shape but is just worn......Would be happy to just get it recovered but maybe "Momo.. the way to go" !
