We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

I am selling my Pitts Prroject. Included is a long fuselage, a set of S1-C wings, a experimental Lycoming O-235 with a solid crank 115 hp, carb. A pair of "I" struts, engine mount, firewall, rudder pedals control stick, instrument panel, fuel tank, Acro style spring landing gear with 5X5 wheels, Scott Tailwheel, turtle deck, pilot seat, Steen plans set, tail surfaces, and rudder.

I installed a straight pitot tube in the lower left wing and ran tubing, I also stripped the fuselage down and zinc chromated it and painted it light grey.

Located at KMCW.

Updated Project info: includes a long fuselage to my knowledge the fuselage has never flown it came from a gentlemen in Oklahoma that passed away, the rear attach fittings are not in the right place per plans so I cut the old ones of and have two new ones from Aviat, but never got around to getting them welded on, overall the welding is good. A set of S1-C wings that came off a flying airplane that was ground looped and the two ribs were replaced with single place ribs and the wing fixed like new. I cut the old pitot tube out of the wing and put a brand new one in and ran tubing. A Lycoming O-235 115 hp believed to be a C1B it is experimental because there is no data plate on the crankcase or logs. The previous owner I bought it from said the engine had around 400 hours on it when it was taken apart to be inspected, the pistons need rings, also included with the engine is a solid crankshaft that was never prop stricken, 4 cylinders, 4 Pistons, piston pins , pushrods and pushrods tubes, Bendix magnetos and ignition harness, intake tubes, connecting rods, oil sump, accessory cover, carburetor, oil dipstick. Also included with the project is a engine mount which will bolt up to the crankcase, firewall, rudder pedals, instrument panel, 19 gal fuel tank, cut sheet metal to make another fuel tank, control stick, pilot seat, die spring Acro style gear with 5X5 wheels and tires, cleveland brake calipers, brake master cylinders, wood turtle deck, a pair of I-struts, fuselage formers, rudder, elevator, and stabilator surfaces, Scott Tailwheel, tail wheel springs, tail brace wires, a set of steen s1-c plans.

I stripped the fuselage and zinc chromated it then painted it a light grey.

Not included is airworthiness or registration, propeller or spinner, cowling, exhaust, instruments, rudder cables, or covering materials, flying wires for the wings.

Bottom dollar is $4,000 which is less money than I have into it.

Based at KMCW, Mason City, Iowa

Is there enough work there to qualify for the 51%? If not how do you get an airworthiness certificate? Not criticizing just curious.

That thing looks to be way less than 50% completed. Building and licensing won't be a problem.
