This Starduster is sitting in a hanger at 54CL in Riverside County, CA and is part of a collection of 17 aircraft being sold by the Estate of the previous owner. I offered to post it here for those interested in obtaining either a Starduser One project or parts.
Landing gear, tailwheel, and flying wires all looked OK. One wing tip has some damage. Condition of the fuselage, spar and ribs is unknown. No engine or instruments. The plane has been in long term hangared storage in a very dry climate and all the planes I looked at seemed, superficially at least, corrosion free. I think that Jim, the fellow selling the planes on behalf of the owners widow, would like to see "a few thousand" for it but would certainly be open to offers.
For those interested in other biplanes -- they have a gorgeous Rose Parrakeet -- O200 continental 110hrs TTAE for around $30k and a beautiful Bucker Jungmann "The Dark Knight" with an IO360 and a killer paint job -- with (I think) about 200 hours) for around $75K.
