• 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).

They were collect from a homebuilt Pitts that I have no information on.
They are to short for stock length. Building from scratch could be made to work with minimal effort.
I'm at KESN.
I've got the wires @ home right now. Probably won't get over to the airport for another couple weeks. Have had to become domestic engineer while wife recovers from surgery.
