Can you post some pictures and give a little history of the parts? Are you willing to separate?

Thanks Doc

I'd be interested in a factory engine mount for an S-1S if you have one.

I purchased 11 Pitts S1 projects and Built light Sport Versions of the Pitts Special that I called the Lil Rascal I made 5 of those to Race in the new SPAR Sport Pylon Air Racing Circuit. www.sparamerica.com But now we are building our two seater The Lil Rascal LS2 version that like the Comet and S2C will cover the front hole and turn into a racer. So our single seat projects are over. So I have airframes, Wings, landing gear, cowlings, nose bowls, etc for sale from the rest of the group. So I thought I would just put them all together and sell them in one lot.

no sorry it is a IROC style race with all the planes equal and IASC Pilots piloting them....Sort of like a red bull on steroids race...www.sparamerica.com

in two years we will have an amateur division though to challenge the pros for a racing slot.

I have decided to sell it all in one lot. to Separate would falsely advertise that the entire 5 projects are all mostly there. I am sorry for the inconvenience but I just want the S1 models gone as almost all our R&D is finished and these are the parts and pieces we wont be utilizing anymore. And we are moving toward a two holer that converts to a single racing canopy much like the Comet. Photos attached... thank you very kindly for your inquiry however.

I would love to see the new race airplanes! Bet they are really cool. I have N25YD which Dave Young also built after he built N19YD. It is one of the fastest Pitts around.

I went to the race website and think the link is incorrect. All I saw was a bunch of Red Bull Air Race videos. Here is the one I went to. Is this the right one?

I'm confused.....
The three planes I see pictured are complete, flying aircraft - but you said you are selling fuselages, which I take as either incomplete projects, or complete but non-flying projects.

Are the planes pictured the actual items for sale?
If not, can you post photos of what you are actually selling?

How many S1 planes did you Actually build from parts and get flying not including the one in the photo above with 19 on the side. It was built by Dave young about a mile from my place.
Not to credible when you post pics of random planes . How do you make a S1
Light Sport ?? We all want to know.
I'm in Deland every other Sunday for breakfast , I would be interested in seeing what the race planes look like .
