• 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'm reluctantly giving up on my Pitts S-1D project. I've concluded that two airplanes are my limit and I'd be better off finding an already flying example in the future (and I want my house back!). I have not included the wing structure thinking that the hardware is worth more. If you're interested in the wings as a whole, let me know.

Thus, I think it's best to part things out so here's what I have to offer...

1) Fuselage $5000.00
-1990's unused factory (to the best of my knowledge) fuselage
-control stick torque tube with blocks and bearings
-Steen rudder, new, powdercoated
-new Grove wheels and brakes
-Bruton tail wire set with terminals

Note...engine mount, landing gear, and horizontal tail feathers are sold.

2) Wing hardware
-Anti-drag wires plus terminal ends (16 are required but I have 28 of them!) MSRP $872.00, My price $750.00 for all
-S-1 Ply leading edges from Steen MSRP 795.00, My price $500.00
-two S-1 wing bellcranks and two S-1 idlers with bearings MSRP $476.00, My price $300.00
-eight "C" or "D" model aileron hinge bases with HEIM REPB3N-2 bearings riveted on, MSRP $824.00, my price $400.00
-two S-1 aileron pushrods MSRP $50.00, my price $25.00
-eight S-1 spar plates, powdercoated MSRP $280.00, my price $175.00
-four S-1 landing wire fitting shafts and collars, powdercoated MSRP $156.00, my price $80.00
-four S-1 (a set) upper wing attatch fitting plates, powdercoated MSRP $92.00, my price $60.00
-ten AN490 threaded rod ends for making torque tubes on 5/8 inch 4130, MSRP $170.65 my price $100.00
-Steen Rib Jigs for "C" or "D" wings, make offer
-Pitts style pitot tube with static setup and some scuffs, MSRP $149.00 my price $50.00

3) Miscellaneous hardware and parts
-quantity (18) HEIM REPB3N-2 bearings, MSRP $1260.00 (& $70.00 per) my price $900.00
-S-1 fuel tank with flop tube from Steen, MSRP $675.00 my price $500.00
-quantity 8 tail wire mounting tabs, new, MSRP $110.00 my price $60.00
-set of Steen S-1C plans, set of "factory" plans with "D" model addendum, make offer
-random pieces of spruce and ply that I'll make a deal on or throw in!
-trailing edge material, I'll make you deal

All prices will go down until sold so check back.

I'm near downtown Atlanta if you wish to pick things up! Please message me for more contact info or more pics.

Regards,

It's really a shame to part that out and not sell it as a complete package.

Sure would make someone a great start to a Pitts if left together! Any idea of a complete package price?

The engine mount, tail feathers except rudder, and a few small items are gone. I'd let all the the rest go for $8000.

Wait, that house looks familiar. Did you do an Internet build log of the Waiex?
