• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Steen Skybolt. Completed in 2002. 230 hours TTAE (engine - HIO-360-B1A) with aerobatic Hartzell CS Prop (190 hours) and 4-into-1 exhaust header. Transponder w/encoder, MGL radio w/intercom, strobe/nav lights, turn and bank, g-meter, chronometer, and the usual gauges. Hooker harness in the back seat only. Clean logs. NDH. Hangared. Fresh annual. Sweetheart to fly.

I'm asking $46,500 OBO. Before you scoff, come and fly it (we'll freeze, but it will be fun).

Owned it for 4-years – love it - and....I'll miss it, but am tired of freezing my butt off in Northern Nevada (bought another fun plane with heat). Since purchase in 09, I have replaced almost everything that wasn’t up to snuff: Both magnetos overhauled, fine-wire plugs, new engine baffling, new engine mount bushings, new engine hoses with fire sleeves, new mechanical fuel pump (also removed the Christen wobble pump and replaced it with an Airflow Performance electric boost pump), overhauled fuel injection flow divider, new fuel lines, new fuel gauge and sending unit, new gascolator, new oil cooler plenum, new alternator, new tires/tubes and brake pads, overhauled brake calipers and master cylinders, overhauled inverted oil system, new main tank inverted flop tube, new landing gear bungees, two new flying wires and upper rear attach fittings (old ones weren’t long enough), new tailwheel and assembly. All under the direction/installation of an A&P IA.

Send me a PM if you're interested. Have lots of photos and other info.

Nice looking airplane. How do you like the MGL radio?

I like it. There is an extensive write-up in the forum if you search for it. It's light, easy to use and clear.

Yes, still for sale. Let it drop off of Barnstormers because I started flying it again since the weather warmed up. No rush to see it go. If you want to come and fly, let me know.
