I saw that Pitts at OSH a few years ago, and I actually spoke to the previous owner in the Spring. From what I understand the "SR" is representative of the stretched fuselage. He told me that it's about 133" long, which he said was about 8" longer than a stock S-1S. Could be ideal if you wanted to hang an angle valve c/s setup on the front. Looked great at OSH.

Its a great looking and flying plane. I have about 10 hours in it personally. Flies very hands off, blinding roll rate for a Pitts, just a good flying plane. I'd snatch it up but I havent gotten my O-360 back from overhaul and sold yet. If you haven't sold the plane by the time I do get my engine sold I'll be giving you a call!

Ed Potter built it as very stretched S1C with a O-290. There were three built at that time. Only two remain. Ed owned my Fairchild 24R for years. He was a biplane guy, mostly Stearmans. A 0-320 was installed in the 80's D. Clark. The O-290 is in Texas on a single seat monoplane. When I installed the 4 3/4 span ailerons, I put a S1? on the tail for fun. It was a mixture of many plans. When it was modified with the spring gear and Wolf style wings, the owner dubbed it SR. It is a great flying bird. The stretch fuselage and reclined seat at 32 degrees makes it nice on Cross Country Pitts compared to straight backs. It presents well in the box.
