• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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).

Acro Sport came out with an optional adjustable fork installed in the front cabane attachment to the fuselage. A barrel is welded in and the fork is screwed in. My cabanes were made with the fixed end (a washer welded to the streamlined tube which has been pinched) My question is, can this cabane be modified by cutting the bottom of the cabane and welding in the barrel, or will the barrel be too far away from the fuselage, and thus the fork would have to be screwed almost it's full travel. I would like to avoid making another set of cabanes, but the adjustment for setting angle of incidence is nice.
