• 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).

A local builder has been working on a Lincoln Sport Biplane for years, but with advancing age (and the need to find a hangar for final assembly), he's looking to sell his project.

The Lincoln Sport was a small biplane that was actually in production during the '30s. Here's a shot of one in Wisconsin:


He says the fuselage and wings are complete, though there's still some work on the lower wing. It was designed for extremely low HP engines...he had a Continental A40 lined up for it, but traded it for a disassembled A65.

He gave me a target price of $7500 for the project and engine, but is willing to negotiate.

Myles Milner can be reached at 253-854-6855. The project is in Kent, Washington, just south of Seattle.

That sure is a cute little bugger.

I wonder if the 912UL 80hp would be too much engine for that? An A-65 is of course a solid reliable engine but the installed weight of the 912 is probably at least 50 pounds less.

Larry, when you get it home give that a thought.......;)
