My father is listing his gorgeous PJ-260 Biplane for sale. He is under a bit of stress lately and if we can sell the airplane it would help alleviate some of that.

I have an ad with pictures on Barnstormers.com, if you search PJ or PJ-260. I am going to copy the ad text and paste here.

Sorry to hear your father needs to sell his airplane. This is a very cool machine. What is TT on airframe? Time since overhaul of the engine? Time since overhaul of prop? Empty and gross weights? Is the speed ring on the engine now?

Hi-

I don't have this information readily available as I am listing it for my father. If you call Kent at the number listed above (368 * 6007), he knows the airplane very well and can answer your specific questions with more detail.

I can tell you that the speed ring is not on the airplane now, but Kent has it in his hangar, as well as the logbooks for the aircraft. In 2007 the speedring came off it's lower right mount and went into the prop. The prop was overhauled then and put back on the airplane and we have not devised a better way to mount the ring (Waco Style instead of the rubber pieces that sheared) There was no damage other than some dings on the prop and some fiberglass chewed up on the ring. The prop should have less than 50 hours on it since it was overhauled. I believe, but am not certain, the engine is around 500 SMOH.
