i made my own from my old airbag wheel. the steering wheel can be cut away from the hub, then you just drill holes and run bolts/washers/nylock nuts. $9 for the hardware and about two hours work, including stopping to eat a sandwich.

Canadian Tire sells the hubs. They are Grants but they might be interchangeable.. $20-40 I believe.

hey it works. a little rough install at the moment but wheel is solidly mounted. still need to wire the horn ground.

for the original poster, i just mentioned this in case you still had the original wheel or could lay your hands on an airbag wheel that someone else has discarded. probably hundreds of airbag wheels gathering dust out there that people have pulled from now-momo-equipped cars...

I'd suggest pacific mall, Bought both the momo hubs for my e30 and e36. Never had issues with the horn, where as a few of my friends have bought them else where and have had lots of problems with the horn working. I paid 50 cash for mine at p-mall.
Same as moscowpete. Great price!

I wrapped the bare hub with electrical tape really quick as a temporary ghetto attempt to clean things up a bit. Ultimately I will remove the tape and just paint it some satin black or the like. The bottom bolt isnt there because of a void in the hub behind it, but that can be fixed by bridging the void in the back with a bit of scrap metal and running the bolt through that. The wheel is on there solidly and im not worried about it at the moment. Im just glad to have room for my fat knees (i'm 6'4" and too many lbs). wheel is an el-cheapo $15 ebay deep-dish wheel that reminds me of arcade racing games of my youth (320mm diameter). it was $30 total with shipping, or $39 with the DIY hub ($9 in bolts/etc purchased from local hardware store).
