• 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).

  • If you have bought, sold or gained information from our Classifieds, please donate to Biplane Forum and give back.

Located in Southern California, Fallbrook (L18).

Fuselage includes: Finished and Powder-coated fuselage with accessories; jackscrew trim, rudder pedals, all push/pull tube controls. All mount tabs welded on. Tail feathers including rudder, vert stab, horizontal stab, elevators (covered, need silver), control cables are rigged. Composite turtledeck and baggage compartment. Finished composite fuse fuel tank with rotating sight gauge. Gear is the revised "tall" version and updated truss with Cleveland 5.00x5 wheels, brakes. Engine mount for Lycoming O290 or 320. Finished SS Firewall. Windshield.

Wings: Lower wings are built, with ailerons, but need some refurbishment. No upper wing, but includes rib jig and capstrip materials for upper wing. Interplane struts included (need cleanup and paint/powder coat).

Does not include: Tailwheel, Flying Wires, any instruments or avionics.

This would be a great 75% starting point for someone interested in a single-seat sport biplane. All welds and composite work have been inspected by a local A&P. No build logs (project has changed hands several times), project has not flown, no previous N# or dataplate. Includes full set of plans with Serial #.

Please contact me by email ([email protected]) as I only check messages here sporadically.

Asking $1,500 for the lot.

Gee Tim hate to see this my friend, but life does get in the way, if I was a bit younger would be all over it, but since my SA-100 has been finished and flown several have taken a liking to it, so you may very well find a buyer, especially at that price. Dave

Yes indeed; here's hoping things get a little closer to "normal" in the coming year! If you know of anyone who would benefit from this project feel free to point them this way...trying to keep it affordable so someone can get this little bird flying!
