• 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).

Rebuilding my grandfather's 1992 acrosport II. I'm working with Chris (of the AS2S fame) on the rebuild, and will probably have a variety of stuff for sale. All prices plus shipping and/or pickup.

To start:
- Complete aluminum turtledeck, per standard plans, complete with front hinged and latched door
- Christen 844 wobble pump, worked when removed
- Complete front cowling sheet metal for the standard nosebowl and "chipmunk" style doors. Good shape.
- Sliding canopy (never installed) - Make offer

Possible for sale (undecided/not there yet)
- Mechanical tach with tach time, includes cable and fittings, 3.5"
- Mechanical oil pressure gauge 0-120psi, 2", with fittings
- Standard amp metere (+- 30A) with shunt and connectors
- Single probe electronic EGT/CHT (have to get brand/model)
- 3.5" Combo manifold pressure/Fuel Flow
- Leaf spring tailwheel assembly (Matco I think)
- Brake cylinders and master cylinder
- Possibly two engine oil coolers (Stewart Warner, 8 row I think)


More info and pics will be posted 11/9 - PM me with any specific questions and I will get the info.

To everyone who has asked about various parts - I should be able to get some pictures out to you in the next couple days. I've not been able to take any good ones at the hangar.

Hi all, sorry I have not been active on the forum in a long while. My project continues to move along, and to answer questions so far:

- I still have the plexiglas canopy and two bubble windshields
- I converted to a tubular spring style tailwheel, so I have the entire old tailwheel assembly available
- Not 100% sure if we will re-use any of the existing oil coolers, I will check on plans next time I am down to Skyhaven (hoping to get down there this week).

I can be reached directly at [email protected].

I will be happy to send pics or better pics of any of this. If there is anything else anyone is interested in please just ask (on here - but also shoot me am email if you would). I will be happy to share my phone number via email as well.
