I'm selling the extra set of wings I have from my old S1S. They are sparcraft wings modified with wood leading edges, and Ravens 30% hinge aileron kit extended one bay, with the slave struts relocated behind I struts. Bottom wings are finished, Top wing needs some finish work as well as the top wing ailerons. These will make someone a great, stong set of wings with good roll rate. All hardware/wing root fairings included. No Flying wires. I sold the S1 and bought a S2B, so I have no reason to keep. Asking 4,500 or make offer. I will also do trades for Aviat husky parts, or a solid flange o-360 a1a crank.

Brad,
Tell me more about the wings.
How about a photo of the top wing and ailerons?
What about i-struts and slave struts, are they included?
Do you have material to finish everything? Plans?
Will stock i-struts work? stock slave struts?
Dennis in Chicago
PS; just started working on the S1S with T engine today, once we open the wings
we may decide to buy new ones depending on their condition.

I will try to get more pictures posted this evening.
Parts Included:
Spare Spruce wood, and T-88 Epoxy
I-Struts, "no modification Necessary"
Slave Struts, Lower Attachment may need Modification
Original S1S ailerons included
Fiberglass Cabane Fairing Cover "Raven"
Top Wing has 5 gallon Tank
All Brackets and Hinges.
Will need 4 bearings for Aileron Strut Brackets. KPS3L
All wing hardware, and pushrods for lowers are included and finished

Back in 2001 the airplane taxied into a Stearman. The Top Left wing front and rear spars
are spliced one bay inboard of the I Struts. They where done professionally by Pete Plumb. Its the strongest part of the whole wing. The Lower Left wing was replaced with a new Sparcraft wing.

Top Wing "Left Side"- Needs Aileron Cove Installed and Finished
Top Wing "Right Side"- Finished
Top Wing "Ailerons need Leading Edges Glued in place.

Lower Wing R Aileron-Finished
Lower Wing L Aileron- Needs lower Leading Edge installed.
Both Lower wings are finished

So Basically Finish the Top Ailerons, balance all 4 ailerons, Finish Installing the aileron cove on one side of top wing, cover, paint, mount and Fly!
