• 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).

Some other stuff that was in the boxes that came along with my 'Duster project. 5" Goodyear wheels. One has an axle like maybe it was used for a nosewheel (yeah, I know -- what's a nosewheel). One of the others is missing the bearing and snap ring, and they probably need bearings, etc. Not sure what you'd put these on, but if anybody needs them, whaddya think? Maybe $75 plus shipping for all 3?

Hi Dennis, your wheels look like they could stand some work. Do you think they can be made airworthy again. Damage, corrosion, etc?
What do you think of sending your wheels to DE? Duane

Actually, aside from the issues I mentioned, they are in remarkably good condition. Though I would have no issue shipping them to DE, they've already been snatched up. Apparently they belong on an Aircoupe. Sorry. :)

I wondered, I have Goodyear wheels and brakes on Miss Smith and they have the brake disk cast on. And yes I take great care of them and they haven't failed me in all these years but I only use them for run up, nothing else.

These did not have the integral brake disks.
