• 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.

I had a visit from my friend the other day who is building a Starduster too SA300. He's at the point where he needs to get his engine mount sorted but is having trouble here in New Zealand getting any sense out of anyone. Even our local AS&S distributor is having trouble as they keep coming back saying our engine model doesn't exist. The aircraft is being built to the plans and is going to be powered by a lycoming IO-540-K1C5 of 300hp( the same as a K1A5 with a couple of accessory changes ) Is there someone who custom builds engine mounts?
Any leads would be appreciated.
