Received an email today inquiring as to what I thought about building up a collection of all the Batmobile steering wheels.

Sounds like a great idea to me. Would make for a very nice Batman related display.

Probably has been done before. Anyone seen a collection like this before?

Just a thought. If someone out there is serious about building up a Batmobile steering wheel collection the most difficult one to find would probably be the DOJ/Justice League Batmobile.

Vertigo, Sly, and THEMAN are currently building movie correct replicas of this steering wheel. This is a good opportunity for others to build along on a replica steering wheel. This steering wheel in a picture frame display would make a great stand alone piece of Batman related sculpture.

Currently machining the knurled metal knobs.
They are quite labor intensive.
In case you are unable to find the original knobs I have attached a copy of the machinist drawing for mine.
You can take the drawing to your local machine shop or send it to one of the online custom knob makers.
Given their labor intensive requirements I would expect them to charge you between 25 to 50.oo for machining each knob. vertigo

Finished machining and knurling ends of knobs.
Cut tapers and threaded center holes on two of the knobs.
These two knobs are complete.
Installed these two knobs in holes and used washers and screws from backside to finish their installation.

Still need to machine taper and center hole thread the remaining six knobs.

Machined the center hub today.
Still need to drill the five bolt holes around the hub and this part will be finished.

Received an email today inquiring as to how much it is costing to build this steering wheel anf how much it would be worth when finished.

Cost to build:
Parts and raw materials: 500.oo
Labor: 1500.oo (providing my own labor)
Total: Around 2,000.oo if hiring the labor to build this steering wheel.
Remember it must be totally movie correct including any mistakes or oddities in the original.
For example: To be movie correct you will need to use the Rizoma motorcycle clutch cover with lettering left non-disturbed.

Estimated sale price at auction if mounted in frame with engraved information plates: 3,000 - 5,000.oo or more.
Maybe, as much as 10,000.oo but doubt it would auction for any higher.
Photo-certificate proving date of creation and existance would demonstrate originality thus proving it was the first.
Since none of these currently exist. The first and original sculpture of this steering wheel would probably bring a premium price. Always remember that something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

Kind of like the look of the stainless steel hub and aluminum knobs.
Drilled the five evenly spaced holes around the center hub.
Used a milling machine with a rotary table chuck to drill and counter bore the recessed holes.
