• 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.

Looking to buy a api tailwheel assembly ; set of leaf springs (j3); rudder horn (looks like a 3/4 shank).

After reading a lot of different things - it looks like leaf springs might be the best option. I don’t have enough clearance for rudder horn with the rod spring that I currently have.

API is out of stock as usual so I thought I put something out there and may be swap it to new when they have one. May be somebody has a whole set of things not being used?

Prefer a double fork, 4 inch tire but open to consider single fork options as well.
