I know of a complete Acrosport for sale for $7500.. Already registered, former flyer with Engine/Prop and I think even Smoke. Also have a friend with a boat load of "stuff" I will see what he has..

I've talked to this guy a couple of times. He's looking for ready to fly parts for free.

Adam is a great guy, following his passion on a tight budget.
The parts to repair his plane are out there collecting dust, he is just trying to locate them.

Edit: Ahhh.... never mind. Just saw it was for an EAA biplane project. sorrrrry....

How far will you travel for parts or an incomplete project ? I know a guy who may still have a Smith Mini... Haven't talked to him in a while but the last I heard the frame (not sure what else) was hanging up in a barn or garage or something doing the ol' collecting dust thing.

Finding what you need without buying another like project is small. A more complete project would be better. Plans and a wicks or spruce catalog will get you there faster. Just not a lot of EAA biplanes laying around.

You usually got to pay to play especially in aviation.


After I stole the engine I sold my(had been flying 2 weeks ago) EAA biplane complete less FWF for $2000. I agree with Tom above that a project is best bet. Problem is you may spend more to go fetch it than it's cost?

I understand being on a tight budget. Most of us have been there, or still are. But, "ready to bolt on and fly" like he told me he wants, and "cheap" like he seems to need are at the opposite ends of the scale. There will have to be a compromise somewhere.

Each EAA biplane is like a snowflake, all different. If you came upon "cheap" ready to bolt on and fly parts they would probably not bolt on without some work. Then you've lost time running them down and bringing them home. There were quite a few of the EAA biplanes built, maybe his luck will change.

That's why I was thinking the AcroSport that is is pieces could be a very good bargain. It's an EAA with different Wings and has an Engine/Prop with registration. I thought $7500 was a bargain. . A flown/certified plane for the price of the Core Engine, just a newer updated version of the EAA Biplane isn't it?

Sounds like a very good price for an airplane with an existing C of A. The streamline tie rods are north of 3500 bucks. Acro Sport is a much improved EAA biplane.

As I recall he has an investment in a damaged EAA Biplane. It makes sense to find parts I suppose but they are getting scarcer and cost to fetch them is not cheap either.

Usually one must make an investment in either time(build or scrounge) or money.......one usually ends up spending both.

I have plans for both. They are not the same other than both being small, single seat bipes.
