Mine is 5 3/16" -- possibly 140mm in Australian money.

Obviously, wheel position is somewhat adjustable - looks like mine is quite a bit farther back than the one in the photo. I prefer a driving position with the seat full back so I have to bring the wheel back a bit to allow a comfortable arm reach.
Mine is set at 5 5/8", a comfortable distance for my long legs also with the seat all the way back.
Mine is one inch farther out than you are showing. Here's a pic, not the best lighting or angel, but for whatever help. I remember setting it with some concern for the location of the engine compartment clamp.
