• 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.

Pitts Project Price Check

There is an S1C early model project about 30 miles from here. It is a complete uncovered airframe on gear, with an O290G engine (I'm assuming it is a rebuildable core), nose bowl, tank, and a few instruments.

The guy is asking 4200$ for it.

Assuming it is in good shape, what is something like this worth? $4200 seems cheap compared to the time I'd put into building it to this point.

Thanks, John
