    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).

I'm not a buyer but you may post what the fabric is and age. What the paint is and age. And a pic of the weight and balance paperwork so people can review it to see if it's a fit before you get a lot of the same questions. Also might post the known cruise speeds at what rpm, and stall speeds. These are just some generic questions that you will probably be asked multiple times. Looks like a deal at $11k! Hope she finds a new happy home.

I like it. Would be nice paired with my SA750:)

I don't know , the way things are he might be lucky enough to even have to answer those questions once.....to the guy who is really interested in buying it? Other than fabric age (which if not otherwise mentioned I would figure was 1982), no one puts that other stuff in their ads.

If I'm interested I need to TALK ( I wish I needed to talk):D

If anyone needs to talk all one needs to do is email or pm and I will give you my number. It is not a show plane; just an inexpensive little biplane. I believe the lower wings were recovered, not sure about the top; fuselage is probably original. He is selling because he is out of room and needs it to finish his project. It gets flown a couple of times a week.

I'm in the Memphis area and a member of the local EAA and IAC chapters, and I've never seen it before. Looks nice. Where's it based? I'm in and out of DeWitt Spain and Charles Baker on a semi-regular basis. Thought I'd seen all the fun little biplanes in the area.

DeWitt Spain is the place. It never goes far. It will go to Baker but does not stop just T&Gs. The owner had a hanger at Baker, but moved over to Spain to be closer to home. Me at the most Northwest hanger( work), him hanger next door.

I'm very sorry to see that someone has not flown this one to his new home. If I wasn't airplane poor already..........................

Really like the paint. I love mine with 150 hp and now I want more power, never happy but it won't happen. Looks like it would sell in a heartbeat.

No S... !

I hope Marcia can't read my mind. I'm thinking of calling my partner to be in April and have him write the check NOW! Have him go ahead and buy our hangar and I'll clean the crap out of it to make room for the new SA100........


All I need is another airplane?

I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking........Oh S... I I think she can read my mind, she just woke up and is coming down the stairs.....got to stop thinking...

Hold on a minute......


No she didn't read my mind, just making some more coffee, came in to fetch my cup and had a smile on her face.....

Whew....that was close.

I'm thinking........:D

Now now. You got a great airplane. and then you would have to worry about 3 planes. He is not heavy to sell yet. its in the way of him finishing another plane but he goes through hobby switches, and he is on fishing right now. New boat, new camper. Sometime around mid summer he will either be flying it every day or it will be on Barnstormers. He has a RV7 too.
