• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I would like to see what builders out there are using for tail wheel springs. I would like to use the Homebuilders Special Tailwheel assembly that is available thru Aircraft Spruce.

I am planning to use the 6" wheel, double fork model.

Lots of builders that I have spoken to have used custom made leaf springs, I am interested in finding a leaf spring set that can be ordered. If anyone out there has any information on a specific leaf spring set that is not custom made, please reply.

BTW, this is for a SD Too application!
