• 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).

I decide to put my Pitts S1C out on the market again. I do not think there is a nicer S1C out there. Was rebuilt by a professional shop in 2012! It looks and flies fabulous. $38,500 or will possibly trade for another plane?? Maybe a 2 seat biplane? Maybe a old but nice 172, 150 Aerobat? Maybe a pacer? Tripacer? Add is up on Barnstormers to see details. 979-451-3251

piggy needs his head examined...… sell or trade the pitts for a TRIPACER????????????
Well i bought a really sweet Cessna 175 last week so no need for a Tripacer anymore. LOL!
I made a deal with the Pitts and ended up with a 540 Skybolt...

What do you expect? Flippers flip:)
We bought the 175 to keep... We have had our 172 since 2010 and only sold it because they are bringing crazy money now... We will own the 175 for a very long time. There is no money to be made on a 175 because people are scared of owning one. I enjoy having a Cessna, they are good all around airplanes.

Just giving you a little grief:) There is nothing wrong with making a little money on each plane. Eventually, you wind up with a free plane. What could be better than that!

Nice, does the 175 still have that silly engine in it or the 360 conversion?

It still has the GO-300...
I like it, It runs silky smooth and is very quiet. They are fine as long as you run them at 3000 to 3200 rpm all the time. If you lug it it will not last long.

yea nice. we got one that comes in our shop that has big tires and the 360 with cs. its nicer than doing it to a 172 cause the 175 has the bigger gas tanks. I like that style with the swept tail and fast back. I like the reverse on the 150. where they kept the straight tail and installed the back window. we also have one of those that comes in with 140 gear on it. painted up like a baby bird dog. cool ride...….

The person that owns the 175 name is Dave, he lives in N/C. He has an additional 175 with a O360 and a C/S that he has owned for 20 + years and still fly's regularly. This A/C has been setting for some time, it still has the GO 300 with about 450 SMOH. Dave recently (about two weeks ago) removed the wings and moved it home to get it back flying (he just retired from a major as a mechanic) this makes three A/C he owns and is coming up on 70 so this one may need to go. When we talked last week he said he would take $7,500 for the A/C including engine. every thing is there. Dave's phone # is (704) 906 6501 he is a honest person I have know for over 30 years.
