• 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).

Beautiful airplane, not to be nosey, and you don't have
to answer but I'm thinking of selling my Vagabond for the high
20's. How much more do I need to add to get a decent Acro II?

I don't recognize it at all, there is one in reading with the Stars and Stripes on it. Find out what airport it's at, maybe deck, or Keller bros????

Lookey here what just showed up yesterday. My buddy Tom bought it. I'll try and find some build info for you guys. I know it's an early to mid 80s build and still original. O-360 with no invert anything. CS prop. Got some things done differently. Slave struts a bit different to help with bending, which is nicely done. Fin offset is eliminated like mine. Landing gear fittings are .125 4130! Some things need updated and repaired, but it will be a fun plane for him. It has straight slot screws in all the side panels! Yuck!

The clown is across the taxiway from me and has been leaving his hanger door open so if I look out mine that's all I see....... Real nice.....
