• 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).

Streamlined stainless brace wires

I have four stainless, polished streamlined brace wires in great shape removed from my Skybolt. They'd been installed by a previous owner with threaded extensions because they were too short, and I was uncomfortable using these extensions. I've purchased longer wires new from Steen and no longer need these. Perhaps they can work for you?

4 wires, stainless, great shape, no nicks, staining, or any of that bad stuff.
Length: 93.5 inches with 2 inches of thread on each end for a total length tip-to-tip of 97.5 inches.

I paid $250 per wire to Steen to replace these. Make me an offer.

Bill -

I checked, and the threaded ends are 5/16-24', which makes them AN675's, as you surmised.

I never knew the AN designator for these wires...Thanks for making me look it up!

I pulled these streamlined wires out and re-measured them.

I have three that are overall length 96-3/8", with 1-1/4" of thread on one end and 1-3/4" thread on the other end, and

one wire 97-3/8" long with 2-1/4" of thread on one end and 1-3/4" of thread on the other end.

Asking $100 each, plus shipping.

PM me for pictures and additional details.
