• 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).

In the market for a reasonably priced, airworthy, 2 place Acrosport, Starduster, Acroduster, or Skybolt. Prefer to "buy and fly". Ideally is an IO360 or IO320, rear canopy. Welcoming suggestions.

What is your price range ? If a good deal on a single seater comes up would you be a player ?

Prefer a 2 place. Would like to keep it in low to mid 20k range. I've seen a number of these in good shape and mid time engines lately. Thanks.

Low to mid 20ks on a 2 place biplane will probably not be very nice. If it lookslooks nice, there must be something wrong. Ive had my finger on the pulse of the market, I just bought a 2 place for 55k but it's pretty nice. A decent single seat could be had in the low 20ks. Pay now or pay later, but we all pay the piper.

I just missed out on a different Skybolt for 25 1/2. Was a 8/10 and in great shape.
