• 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Hi guy's just wanted to let it be known, I have decided to replace my Marquat gear with conventional skybolt gear. I took my fuse apart today and will order steel next week. It was a hard decision for me to do this as this gear was what led me to this plane in the first place. After new legs off to powdercoating we go. So if anybody wants Marquat gear or Jacobs eng. Let me know. Jak
