• 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).

  • If you have bought, sold or gained information from our Classifieds, please donate to Biplane Forum and give back.

These sold, sorry. Give it a few days for your classified to disseminate...you never know...

Also, this place has some new old stock, but they are running low now, not much choice left. But you might find a couple the right length, and cheap, to keep the total cost down:

I believe I have lower wing wires for external fittings if that helps.

I have a complete set taken from a project, and seven others 150.00 each, plus shipping. These came from an unfinished project.
