• 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).

Here's the deal. One of my hangar neighbors aquired a Speezio Tuholer project. It suffered a hard landing that bent the fuselage tubing in the landing gear attach area. After looking over the project, I pursuaded him to try to sell the project to asmall biplanebuilder rather than trying to fix it up. Here's what you'd get if you purchased Travis' Speezio. A Lycoming O-290G, wheels and brakes, a tailwheel assembly and spring, a pair of Scott heel brakes, basic VFR flight and engine instruments, some throttles, etc. It would go a long way toward getting a Hatz or similarproject going for not a lot of money. I'll try to find out how many hours on the engine. He didn't say and I forgot to ask.
For a mere $3500 you can have all of that good stuff to transfer toyour project, plus the pleasure of figuring out how to dispose of a Speezio carcass. If nothing else, you'd be helping put Travis out of his Speezio misery. If you've priced Scott heel brakes lately, they're worth 1/2 the asking price on their own!
Call me at 951-378-8980 or shoot me an email if you can't resist such an offer.
