• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

My Piet has Piper landing gear. It needs replaced due to damage. I can't find gear with the same measurements. Can anyone identify what I have.
It looks like J-3 gear, V style. It is 20 3/4" outside to outside of the mounting holes.18 3/4" from inside to inside of the mounting holes.The axle is 1 1/4" ID. And the short primary tube is aprox. 25 1/2" from bolt hole to axle.

Please help identify this gear if you can.
