• 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.

Well, I may end up regretting it, but I tentatively sold my Luscombe yesterday. All that remains now is for the money to change hands. So...I have started to look for a replacement airplane more actively. I found an Acrosport II a couple months ago that I really liked. The only problem is that it doesn't have an engine. It was built in 86, had an accident in 2000, and was rebuilt by the guy that has it now. From what I can tell, he has done top notch work. The airplane is complete except for the engine installation. I am really interested in this airplane, and I can get it for a really nice price. Is there anything that I should pay particular attention to on an Acrosport II?
