Unfortunately I have to sell a few crucial components from the project Pitts to fund a flying Pitts, so these will have to go.

I occasionally drive down to FL from CT, so if you live relatively close to that stretch of road, I might be able to save you the shipping expense.

In an attempt to keep things organized, the items that are pending sale have the name of the member who was first to inquire listed beside them. All items that have been sold will be marked as such.

Kevin,
Got the canopy and exh today really fast. Can't believe how nice they are and how well
packaged. i think i owe you $500 for tape alone. It took me 1 hr to unpackage everything!
Thanks for taking care of me and send a photo of the Pitts when you get it.

Dennis, glad you're pleased with the canopy! I was a bit nervous about it getting damaged in transit so I went a little overboard with the tape :) I look forward to seeing it installed!

Sorry for reviving this old thread, didn't realize I had missed a post! Unfortunately the tailwheel didn't work out for Eric, so if anyone else is interested I'd be open to offers. I also have a locking mechanism that I special ordered from Spruce that I'd be willing to include with the tailwheel.

Also would like to thank anyone who purchased something from this thread, I was finally able to scrape enough money together to buy a flying Pitts, just brought her back from Alabama :)

I hope you can sell that beautiful tailwheel Kevin. Thanks for being to good about taking it back. For the future buyer I only eyeballed it next to my current Haigh (it would have raised the tail about 1 1/2"). It never touched the plane.

What I did with the nose bowl and spinner.



Yes, I am aware the prop is a pusher propÂ… It is all I had.
