• 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).

All,

I gentleman here at Kelly Airpark just dropped off some Skybolt parts. Two I struts and 8 Tail Brace wires. Struts have mount area damage. Can be repaired. Streamline looks good. Could be cut down for Pitts. The wires are 1/4" Dia thread. 4 are 44" 2 are 41" and 2 at 39". Good condition.

I will list the price of the I-Struts at $100.00
Wires at $25.00 per unit.

Buyer pays shipping.

All proceeds should be sent to Web Master Host to support this site. Time to give back.

I can provide pics.

Thank you,

Here are some pics of the I struts and wires. The one strut looks good as is. Do not know if built to plans. The other strut has square tubing damage. Both need uncover and inspect. Also a pic of wires. One of the wires has been shortened to fit.

I will take the wires! I will figure out how to send $200.00 to Beej and then we can figure out the shipping to Canada, which of course I will pay. Will that work??

Thank you!!

Phil,

That works for me. Send me a PM for address for shipping. You work on the donation to the biplane forum.

Skybolt Builder want to be: I was at Erie Airport today to check on some wings for Cessna. Duff's Salvage Warehouse Hangar was open. Took a walk through. In the back was a Skybolt Fuselage with wings. Good welding. See pics. If interested let me know. Will provide owner contact info.
