That is actually pretty good on this end. I got a quote of over 500 by one if I wanted the leather matched to something specific.

Moto-Lita charge $120 to rewrap a wheel in their leather. Said shipping would be around $55...and you have to get it over the pond as well. They charge the same price if you supply your own automotive leather.

Ashamed to say north of $275, but perfect workmanship.

Thanks guys! I actually reached out to Craft yesterday and waiting to hear back.

I decided to reach back out to Moto-Lita to see if anything has changed. They now offer red leather with matching stitching (they didn't last time I asked) but only one color. They said I could actually supply my own leather to them, which is interesting. Waiting to hear a quote on the services. 

What would you say was expensive? A brand new wheel from Moto_Lita is about 200usd (for wheel only with no boss or horn).

I found a shop in Texas (can't find the invoice) that did a great job, but was expensive.  But you get what you pay for.  Google it.

Hey all, 
I am looking to have a leather John Cooper Moto-Lita steering wheel redone and wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction? I contacted Moto-Lita themselves and although I dont mind sending it over there, they will not source (color match) the leather nor the stitching. I have found several shops in the UK that appear to have lots of experience with these wheels, I haven't found any stateside. Anyone know of an amazing shop that can replicate the quality of Moto-Lita over here?
