• 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).

Another couple parts that came with this Starduster project. It's a Maule tailwheel, single arm, 8", with springs. Were attached to this fuselage when I got it but obviously never flown on this airplane (since it ain't done yet :)). Does appear has probably been used on something, but they're in decent condition. The hubcap is missing on the one side (as you can see from the pics). Can't give you any information about the springs other than that they were bolted to the tailwheel and this airplane when I got it. Again, never know what they ought to be worth, but I guess the tailwheel would be maybe $300 new and the springs $150 or so? So what if we call it $200 plus shipping for both?

The friction damper marks that as a really old Maule unit. Probably original on a C-140.

... and by the way, that's a 1 1/2" spring.
