• 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).

I'm focusing finances on the boat but when I see something like this........ I wish someone would buy it so I don't have to think about it. It is too bad they are so ugly.... Maybe I'm lucky they are ugly.

There is a HyperBipe thread that just petered out. Anybody know if the guy in N. IL. is still around?

I saw it on Barnstormers and I think it is a great deal. The more I look at Hyperbipes and Wittman Tailwinds the more I like them. The Yahoo group has some good pictures of some restorations and builds.

If I'm going to dream, I'm going to dream BIG. I couldn't afford a 185 on floats.
