Another great British business that is intrinsically linked with the Mini Cooper
story is that of Moto-Lita.
Simon Green started his career in the motor industry as an apprentice at the Cooper
Car Company back in the early 1950's where he was eventually tasked with making the
steering wheels for their single seat racing cars. When he left Cooper's he worked
for a number of other racing car manufacturers before setting up "Simon Green Ltd"
in 1956. Originally based in a redundant chicken shed in Esher, where he began to
make racing car specification steering wheels for road cars.
From those small beginings Moto-Lita have grown from strength to strength & are one
of the few companies who have continued to represent quality & value in a world where
so much is transitory.
